Normandale's Division of Health Sciences received a grant from Delta Dental of Minnesota to develop and implement an Innovative Community Health Worker and Navigator Program. With the triple aim of improving health, improving health care and lowering the cost of care by improving quality, the newly developed certificate program will meet current and projected workforce and student body needs. The interdisciplinary curriculum will represent all fields of health sciences (dental, nursing, health education, dietetics and informatics).
Normandale's Education Training Academy (EdTrAc) is making a difference in our community by improving literacy and the love of reading for all ages through community service. EdTrAc students are installing and maintaining “Little Libraries” in low socio-economic neighborhoods. Coughlan Companies donated more than 100 assorted children’s books for the project.
