What is the GrapeVine Project?
The GrapeVine Project is a free health education program for women in counties across Wisconsin. We partner with local nurses who conduct health education sessions on a variety of women’s health topics.
GrapeVine sessions teach participants about risk factors, symptoms, prevention, lifestyle changes and resources to lead a healthy life. Nurses can provide sessions in businesses, homes, churches, community centers, libraries, and other public locations. All participants will receive a small gift at the end of each session.
Participant Comments from Education Sessions
WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS ARE DOING TO IMPROVE THEIR HEALTH:
Breast Cancer Session – “I have shared what I learned with others. I am doing self-exams more regularly.”
Heart Disease Session – “Checked BP at home was 145. Made a doctor appointment (the first in five years!)”
Heart Disease Session – “I thought this was an excellent learning session with an excellent leader. Awareness was brought to the forefront – and I am a retired cardiac secretary! Thank you for a great learning experience.”
Healthy Aging Brain Session – “I have talked with our daughter who will be making health and end of life decision for us.”
Healthy Aging Brain Session – “My mom has mild-moderate dementia – more patience when she asks occasionally for relatives who are deceased (don’t try to correct her). Easier to go along with it or redirect her.”
Mental Health Session – “Putting time aside to take care of myself.”
