How did We Are West 7th! get started?

In 2008, United Family Medicine providers partnered with community members to complete a needs assessment of the West 7th neighborhood. This project, "Healthy West 7th!", determined that identifying and coordinating local resources was a priority of the neighborhood. In 2014, community members formed "We Are West 7th!" to address this need by building this website for everyone to use and enjoy. The United Hospital Education and Research Committee and the Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians shared our vision and funded the creation of this website.
