Minden Public Schools, UNMC, and Two Rivers Public Health Department (TRPHD) have partnered to introduce the CATCH Kids Club in Minden. The after school program encourages young students to pursue a healthy lifestyle while providing nursing students an opportunity to explore the role of a population nurse.
UNMC instructor Denise Waibel-Rycek, MSN, RN, approached TRPHD about introducing the program in Minden. TRPHD already had the supplies needed and UNMC students would lead the program with joint supervision from Waibel-Rycek and TRPHD. Nurse Julie Anderson helped find interested 5th and 6th grade students to meet after school for the program.
