Yakima Memorial Hospital educates mothers

YAKIMA, Wash. - Yakima Memorial Hospital is teaming up with two local organizations to help educate Hispanic mothers and their families.

Memorial Hospital's Community Education is partnering with La Casa Hogar and YMCA.

The classes are held every Thursday 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The mothers not only learn about health, but how to speak English and they learn skills needed for the workplace.

While the mothers are in class, their children are at YMCA participating in Memorial's Passport to Health Program.
