Caring for the community
(L-R) Mehlville PAT coordinator, Barb Ehlen, and Laura Bub, Community Outreach Coordinator, St. Anthony’s Medical Center.
Partnership with Parents
Great patient care isn't St. Anthony's only service to the community. Representatives of the medical center also work with area schools to grow healthy kids and families.
St. Anthony's partners with five local school districts (Lindbergh, Mehlville, Bayless, Affton and Kirkwood) to support their Parents as Teachers programs. Parents as Teachers is an organization affiliated with our local school districts that support a parent's role in promoting children's school readiness and healthy development.
St. Anthony's Community Outreach program supports a speakers' series geared to educate parents on a variety of parenting topics, as well as books and other special activity programs for kids and their parents. St. Anthony's also provides clinical staff such as physicians, dietitians and other health experts, who present to parents as part of the speakers' series.
Each Parents as Teachers program tailors its funding to the unique needs of its parents. The Mehlville Parents as Teachers Program has used the St. Anthony's Medical Center/PAT Partnership Grant to offer quality learning experiences to families by providing respected early childhood speakers and family events, aiding parents in the journey of raising their children. Kirkwood Parents as Teachers offered a six-week Love and Logic course to parents free of charge.
St. Anthony's is proud and excited to partner with our local schools to help our community by growing healthy kids and families!
