Event description
Join MPHA & MINN to learn more about the Alliance Wellness Center!

About this Event

Join the Minnesota International NGO Network (MINN) and the Minnesota Public Health Association (MPHA) for a Talk and Tour of the Alliance Wellness Center at their offices in Bloomington to get an in-depth look at the organization in a small group setting. The agenda will focus on all aspects of the center, where Minnesotans of East African descent can get help overcoming addiction.

Alliance Wellness Center is a trusted addiction treatment center that offers multicultural services delivered by a qualified staff with a focus on mental health issues and addiction. Issues of substance abuse and mental health services for Minnesotans of Somali and other East African descent will be addressed in depth.

Check out a Star Tribune article on the Center here.

Alliance Wellness Center is under the leadership of Yussuf Shafie, and our multidisciplinary team of professionals who deliver quality substance abuse treatment to men and women. Yussuf Shafie MSW, LGSW a graduate of the University of MN. Yussuf is an active and well-respected member of the addiction community. He is a licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor (LADC) with the Board of Behavioral Health. He completed his internship with the Community University Health Care Center as a Social Work Triage Specialist, and he continued on as a Mental Health Practitioner with CUHCC. In 2015, Yussuf opened Alliance Wellness Center in Bloomington, MN, a DHS licensed Substance Abuse Outpatient and Inpatient Treatment Program. He is Board member of the Minnesota Trauma Project and Minnesota Recovery Connection. Yussuf’s passion is to bring wellness to those affected by addiction and mental health problems.

This Talk and Tour event is an opportunity for MINN and MPHA members to gain first-hand knowledge of the workings of innovative community and international health organizations in the state. The Talk and Tour agenda is simple. Employees of an organization offer a private tour of their facility and then field questions about their organization’s work and their office culture. While these forums are a minimal fee and open to MINN and MPHA Members, space is limited, and registration is required. Please consider joining the hundreds of international professionals who already have a MINN membership or local, or joining community based professionals in becoming a member of MPHA. If you have questions regarding your membership write us at in membership@minnesotangos.org or membership@mpha.org

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITY: There will be a networking opportunity following the Talk and Tour at a nearby restaurant/bar (we’ll find someplace nearby which will be easy for folks to get to). The gathering is open to all who would like to network with the MINN or MPHA members along with the Alliance Wellness Center staff!

WAITLIST: If this event is filled please sign up for the waitlist as we often ask waitlisted people to attend closer to the event.

QUESTIONS? Contact John Oswald, MINN/MPHA Program Committees, at john.w.oswald@gmail.com with any questions.

Note: MINN does not offer refunds for event attendance costs. If you pay to attend an event and are no longer able to attend, your payment will be considered a donation to support the great work being done by MINN! Thank you for understanding.
