MUL RESPONDS: Star Tribune article about Urban League intentionally misleads
Tuesday, 21 April 2015 15:32
The April 13 article by Star Tribune Reporter Alejandra Matos, "Minneapolis Urban League Under Fire for Potential Double Billing" was intentionally misleading and failed to share the true facts. We were quite disappointed to read Ms. Matos' final product after spending hours with her and providing her with copies of contracts and reports. We even offered to make available students and program participants to tell the tremendous impact that the Urban League Academy Alternative School and the Urban League 13th Grade Program has had on their lives. Ms. Matos rejected our offer and ignored the pages of material we presented documenting our great work with these programs. Sadly, she chose to present a biased and cynical fairy tale masquerading as a news story.

Peter Carlson, Community Paramedic North Memorial Health Care
In 2012, North Memorial Health Care launched an innovative program that helps patients beyond hospital and clinic walls. The Community Paramedic program removes emergency-trained paramedics for one or two days a week from our hectic routine of racing to the scene of accidents and instead we make scheduled visits to homes of frail or elderly patients, or those with chronic conditions like diabetes. When we started the Community Paramedic program nearly three years ago, it was the first of its kind of Minnesota.
