Who Ya Gonna Call?

We now have 211 service in Marion and Polk Counties. This is a relatively new public service that provides a resource line for anyone seeking information about almost anything that relates to human needs in our area. They maintain up-to-date information about many topics, including health care resources, mental health, public assistance, housing, and a wide variety of other topics. If your question is ‘how do I get this accomplished?’ or ‘where do I go for (blank)?’ these people can probably tell you.

In our service area, the 211 line comes to us courtesy of United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley.

Questions? Call 211! More information also available here.

 

Resources for Children with Digestive Disorders

Thanks to Dr. Linda Muir, Pediatric Gastroenterologist at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, for telling us about this great website. If you have a child with celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, reflux, or other gastrointestinal conditions, you will likely find this a very helpful resource.
