Trinity Health has named Amber Emerson, RN, coordinator of Safe Kids Minot, a coalition of community groups concerned about childhood safety.
A registered nurse, Emerson has been associated with Trinity Health for 13 years, working in geriatrics, medical-surgical, and clinic nursing, as well as in the G.I. Lab and Same Day Surgery. She’ll continue her Same Day Surgery role and assume part-time duty in Trinity’s Trauma Services program, working in the areas of injury prevention and Safe Kids Minot.
“Becoming a parent has shown me that children can have big dreams, and it’s important that they have the chance to grow up and follow those dreams,” Emerson said. “We’re a growing community with an ever-expanding need to keep our kids safe. The best way to do that is through education and providing the necessary resources.”
Safe Kids Minot is an affiliate of Safe Kids Worldwide, a nonprofit global network that helps families and communities keep kids safe from injury. Trinity Health is the lead agency for Safe Kids Minot.
