Water4
Water4

Richard and his wife Terri are co-owners of Pumps of Oklahoma, a wholesaler distributor and manufacturer of water well drilling, pumping and water treatment equipment.

In 2005, Richard had an opportunity to travel to China and use his corporate expertise to bring clean water to the people of a remote community using a solar pump. This experience gave him a heart for learning more about the world water crisis, and finding how he could be part of the solution.

Richard and Terri founded Water4 in 2008 with the mission of eradicating the world water crisis.

In their work in the developing world, the Greenly’s became aware of the difficulty of taking sophisticated machinery into remote, rural areas to drill one well for a village. They began researching alternate solutions, and after much searching, Richard reached out to an old friend, Steve Stewart, to discuss the possibility of designing something entirely new.

Adverse Childhood Experiences
Adverse Childhood Experiences

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are stressful or traumatic experiences, including abuse, neglect and a range of household dysfunction such as witnessing domestic violence, or growing up with substance abuse, mental illness, parental discord, or crime in the home. ACEs are strongly related to development and prevalence of a wide range of health problems, including substance abuse, throughout the lifespan. Because ACEs are common and strongly related to a variety of substance abuse and related behavioral health outcomes, prevention of ACES and early identification of those who experience ACEs could prevent a number of negative consequences and have a significant impact on a range of critical health problems. During this presentation we will define ACEs and how ACEs effect you and your community.

A certified prevention specialist, LaShonda Williamson-Jennings is responsible for providing and coordinating the delivery of tailored, state-of-the-science training and technical assistance that optimizes the ability of states, tribes, and communities to achieve substance abuse prevention outcomes.   As co-director of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Prevention Technology Transfer Center for region 6 she monitors service delivery among multiple clients and staff, assuring solutions and service quality are of the highest standards.
