These multi-lingual booklets were developed to provide information to newcomers in Minnesota. Multi-Cultural Educational Services created these materials in collaboration with Anoka County Community Health and Environmental Services. They were originally funded by Allina Health Systems, UCare Minnesota and Minnesota Department of Children Families and Learning. They have been successfully and enthusiastically used by Public Health Educators in Minnesota.
