Community Projects Completed by Children’s Mercy Residents

Residents in the global health track have led and organized several local, community projects in coordination with Kansas City organizations. These community projects and partnerships set a firm foundation for continued sustainable and mutually beneficial relationships between Children’s Mercy and the Kansas City community.

Some of the projects include:

Several children and adults, some in masks, standing together near a table in an outdoor area on a cold day.

Winter Warmth where refugee families were provided winter clothing staples such as hats, gloves, and coats in coordination with the main refugee resettlement agencies in Kansas City.

Four young people, some of them masked, standing outdoors near a new girls' bike.

Bike Rodeo in partnership with BikeWalkKC to provide education around bike safety for area kids.

Several people stand together outside in front of a Kansas City fire truck

Child Health and Safety Fair in partnership with many local organizations such as KCFD, Literacy KC, and Harvesters to teach about safe sleep, healthy eating, etc.
