  • Food Drives and School Supply Drives: From 2008-2010, Embodied Health organized food drives and school supply drives with donations directed to Keystone Community Services, a human services organization serving families in St. Paul.

Community Providers

When making recommendations to other providers, Embodied Health considers how the provider's values and knowledge of intersectional social issues will impact the work they offer.  Within those considerations, here are two health care providers that are an excellent complement to the services we provide at Embodied Health.
