Governor Herbert: RESTORE DENTAL SERVICES FOR ADULTS ENROLLED IN MEDICAID

Governor Herbert:In the refugee camps, where you struggle to keep the mud and cold out of your tent and are forced to fight for food, poor dental health is a foregone conclusion.  A few of your constituents, individuals who have spent fifteen years or more in camps, now need your help.Let me introduce you to D-, a Bhutanese refugee, one of the forgotten people.  Forced from her home because she is an ethnic minority, Lhotshampas, she managed to keep her family together and after extreme turmoil, was granted refuge in Utah one year ago.  When my wife and I, with our nonprofit Women of the World, went to their home, she and her husband are extremely malnourished since the basic act of eating over rotten teeth is painful.  Women of the World in collaboration with Fortis College donated free hygiene and checkups for D-'s family but students and instructors could do little for her pain or extreme problems.  D- and many like her need Medicaid dental services reinstated to enjoy and contribute in Utah.Let me tell a different story, a story of the future of D-'s grandson, who because of his drive, the desire to escape poverty, and the gift of American education and the entrepreneurial spirit, he becomes the next Sergey Brin, the co-founder of Google.  As a semiconductor engineering manager at IMFT, I can assure you that our greatest headway towards making Utah's Wasatch Valley the new Silicon Valley rests with young refugees like D-'s grandson.  He'll contribute where he feels most wanted, I urge you to make that place Utah.Please, follow the #1 recommendation from the Medicaid Medical Care Advisory Committee forwarded to you by the Department of Health to…RESTORE DENTAL SERVICES FOR ADULTS ENROLLED IN MEDICAID!Samira and Justin HarnishExecutive and Development Director for Women of the World

3rd World Living in Utah

Women Of the World volunteers visit families from different countries.  One of the apartment for family  was full with mold and the carpets for bedrooms were so wet.  WoW volunteers contacted the landlord but there was no response from her at first, then the landlord claimed it is the way 'these immigrants like to live.'  So Women of the World went to the housing authorities and to the health department to help the family.

It was hard to get everyone's attention but the wonderful volunteers didn't stop until they get help to the family.  Despite our focus to empower women in education andemployment, there is still a great deal of need in critical service that we are meeting at Women of the World.

Workshop: Nutrition

Today, Women of the World, in collaboration with Brigham Young University, sponsored a nutrition workshop for women from the Middle East. While the Mediterranean diet has become a successful diet low in fat in the western world, refugees from the region do not always have the ingredients in their transplant communities to accurately represent the native delicacies. This workshop surveyed the women for their nutritional habits in Utah and contrasted them to the habits they had in their native countries.The Nutrition Workshop also highlighted the Mediterranean diet by serving a full meal, prepared by WoW President and Founder Samira Harnish, of traditional Iraqi fare. The women at the workshop enjoyed the dinner and the information and requested a repeat for the community -- the ability to get together with their friends and talk about food, friends, and family. Further information from the survey and the project conducted by BYU will be made available as soon as Women of the World is granted access.

Workshop: Breast Cancer Awareness

The Women of the World was proud to sponsor the translation and to help with the organization of the first Multicultural Breast Cancer Awareness workshop.  Breast cancer is a key concern with the refugee communities since early detection and reporting is less prevalent in cultures where women do not discuss breast health in any company, but especially where jargon or gender roles make women feel extremely uncomfortable.  The Multicultural Breast Cancer Awareness Seminar aims to eliminate technical jargon while furthering Breast Cancer Awareness in our community members' native languages.  The Women of the World supported translation in Arabic while other communities added Swahili, Karen, Somali and Nepali.Overall, this workshop shows the key role that Women of the World plays in blending the cultural conservatism of refugee women with their need for information critical to maintaining the communities health.
