March 2018

Welcome to Sarah Dotters, Our Celebrate One Connector

 Celebrate One is the citywide program funded by United Healthcare Foundation and the city and county to improve the infant mortality results in several key areas of Columbus. Our neighborhood, Linden, has almost the worst infant mortality in the city. The focus of Celebrate One is to draw individuals from these communities and train them to have a positive impact on pregnant women, pregnant age women, and families. These current 24 connectors have been trained to be Community Healthcare Workers through the OSU School of Nursing. They are assigned to social service agencies like NNEMAP to work and learn what we do. Then, after several weeks, they go out in the community to begin “connecting” people to services. Sarah Dotters is our second Connector. She comes with an excellent background in social services. She spent 3 years with Choices Domestic Violence Agency. She most recently six years with the Columbus City Prosecutor’s Office as a Legal Advocate and prior to that, Administrative Assistant. While working as a Connector, she is also volunteering with Huckleberry House. She spends time with young people going through troubled times. We look forward to having Sarah be a part of NNEMAP in 2018!
