WWG Middle School hosts cross-cultural training By Carolyn Van Loh Sentinel Tribune About 100 people from Redwood, Lyon, Cottonwood, and Murray Counties gath- Lillian Vang ered at the middle school in Walnut Grove Monday morning, July 12. Staff and board members from the Tracy. Westbrook, and Slayton hospitals, represen- tatives of county agencies, school district officials, and community members met for the purpose of learning about the Hmong people and their culture. Litlian Vang, represent- ing the Center fbr Cross Cultural Health, is well qualified to work as a con- sultant in cross cultural health issues. She came to the U.S. as a toddler and grew up in south Minneapolis. Her back- ground growing up in two cultures enables her to see the difficulties of combining very different cultures. Communication between dif- ferent cultural life styles cannot be effective unless both cultures understand each other. The aim of the July 12 workshop was to promote positive cross cultural inter- actions between health and community services person- nel and the growing Hmong population in Tracy and Walnut Grove. Medical per- sonnel need to understand why a Hmong patient is seeking help. They may not realize that their patient has already exhausted tradition- al Hmong medical practices. Vang divided the partici- pants into small groups to discuss factors in dealing with various situations they may face. Suggestions and observations were then reported to the entire group. Members of the ttmong community have established a number of innovative serv- ices for their peers. As early as 1975 Mutual Assistance were set up and adminis- tered by Hmong officials. Hmong media, including tel- evision, radio, and newspa- pers have assisted Hmong immigrants as they attempt to live in a completely new culture system. Members of the local Hmong community provided traditional Hmong foods for the lunch which concluded the meeting. About one hundred professionals and interested com- munity members from a four-county area attended the Hmong cross-cultural training in Walnut Grove. The food line stretched all the way accross the street in front of the community cen- ter. Storden Baptist -- from page I The meal was catered by by Rev.
