Parker Village expands its green tech


Publisher’s Corner As 2020 draws closer to a close, My thoughts are with the 240,000+ Americans that have perished due to Coronavirus, The exposed underbelly of our society and the division and hatred for fellow Americans throughout the country. This isn’t a Pro Trump or Anti-Trump message. This is one human being to both sides of the political spectrum. I can recognize that there are issues on both sides of the partisan coin that haven’t been fully addressed or addressed to the satisfaction of the people. I can recognize that each side has different perspectives. What I can’t understand is why we can’t seem to come to a peaceful middleground anymore. The same as it is in America, it seems to be a smaller, but no less intense version happening right here in Highland Park. The important and final question I will leave you with in my monthly thoughts on paper is, when are we going to have both sides of the Highland Park political coin, unite and achieve the very feasible and actionable goals of rebuilding our city...together. - Juan Shannon

Free Health Clinic

A free clinic, we provide examinations, maintenance and preventive healthcare for underinsured women and their children, including immunizations, diabetes screening, contraception, and blood pressure testing. Open weekdays, it utilizes a staff of physicians and nurse practitioners, many of whom volunteer their time, in the areas of: gynecology, pediatrics, internal medicine, podiatry, reflexology, physical therapy, psychiatric services, naturopathic/ holistic medicine, and nutrition.

Originally launched in December of 2008 by S.A.Y. Detroit and the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries as the nation’s first free medical clinic devoted to homeless children and their mothers, the clinic has expanded its reach to female patients with limited income, in transitional housing and employment situations, and who are homeless. Accepting patients from all over the Detroit area, the clinic currently sees close to 7,000 patients a year who are in desperate need of healthcare.
