Speaker : Joe Schmit, KSTP TV - Topic: Make a Silent Impact


Great leaders are the happiest, most productive people because they have discovered how to lead a life of significance.  It's all about making an impact.

Joe Schmit has been interviewing and researching influential people discovering the factors that truly make an impact in the lives of others.

He is a storyteller who has spent 30 years as sports anchor for KSTP-TV (ABC-Minneapolis/St. Paul) and has been awarded 18 Emmy's and a National Headliner Award.

Joe's keynote, workshops, video series and book help individuals and teams put those principles into practice and make a true impact.

Human Traffkicking

Many of us have the image of human slavery taking place in other parts of the world. However, it is happening in our own country AND is a significant industry right here in Minnesota and in your community.

Clare Lillis, Past District Governor

Human Slavery has been identified as such a global issue that Rotary International has identified this as one of the next global initiatives to solve as we get closer to celebrating the end of polio.

To help us understand our role in this epidemic, Clare Lillis, the Co-chair of District 5960 Human Trafficking Task Force, presented us with information and statistics to give us a better understanding of how we can work together to bring about education on Human Trafficking in our communities.

Dr. Doug Tate
Peg Duenow, Dr. Doug Tate
Andean Community Partners began in 2005 when pediatrician Dr. Doug Tate and Professor Ted Johnson developed an interim course at St. Olaf College called Peruvian Medical Experience. For the first two years of the program, 12 premedical and predental students shadowed a surgical team of Children’s Surgical International in Arequipa Peru.
Andean Community Partners now serves 500 to 600 patients annually in their mission to improve the health and well-being of people in Andean communities by focusing on health and infrastructure, while encouraging St. Olaf students to live a life of worth and service.
President Peg Duenow presented Dr. Tate with a grant check from Lakeville Rotary Club in the amount of $4000 to be used  toward an electronic medical record  (EMR) system that could be shared with all providers (Dr.’s, Dentists, pharmacy etc.)  The Andean Community Partners doctors and volunteers work in Willoq every January. Occasionally, the mission will have patients who need care at other facilities. The non-profit Andean Community Partners (ACP) is planning to coordinate and facilitate the care that these patients’ needs. Having the information in an EMR would improve the process and would facilitate communication with the local providers.
