Notes

The Cincinnati Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society traces its roots to August 13, 1958, when eighteen people, including Miss Nora Kindness, met to form a group wherein they could learn Scottish Dancing. From this meeting, The Scottish Folk Dancing Society of Cincinnati was formed. A year later the group became The Scottish Dance Society of Cincinnati, and on August 11, 1961 became an Affiliate Member of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society.

On June 20, 1983, after almost 25 years of dancing, the group became The Cincinnati Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society. This occurred when Babs Egbert became the group’s second fully certificated RSCDS teacher.The Cincinnati Branch RSCDS promotes and preserves Scottish Country Dancing, the ballroom/social dance of Scotland. The Branch conducts instruction in Scottish Country Dancing, holds social dances and workshops, and performs demonstrations of Scottish Country Dance at numerous events in the Southwest Ohio area year ’round.

Shoulder to Shoulder began providing health care services in western Intibucá, Honduras in 1990, six years prior to its official American incorporation. It was established by Dr. Jeff Heck of the University of Cincinnati Family Medicine Department in collaboration with the people of Santa Lucia, Intibucá. Today, Shoulder to Shoulder remains a private, non-profit, non-governmental organization.

In the spirit of local empowerment, Shoulder to Shoulder, Inc., worked with local community leaders in Honduras to form Hombro a Hombro, a grassroots, community-based, non-profit NGO registered in Honduras since 1998. Shoulder to Shoulder and Hombro a Hombro work in tandem to achieve a single mission: to work together with our diverse communities to create and operate sustainable health, nutrition, and education services with equitable access for everyone.

Shoulder to Shoulder focuses its efforts in the areas of basic health care, advanced medicine, dental services, education programs, community health programs, and nutrition within the communities we serve. By incorporating these areas into our care and outreach, we are able to lay a solid foundation for public health issues that affect the communities we serve.

Over the last 23 years, we have expanded to include the municipalities of Santa Lucia, San Antonio, Magdalena, Concepción and San Marcos de Sierra. Today, Shoulder to Shoulder is responsible for the health of over 36,000 rural Hondurans. We employ over 100 Honduran staff through Shoulder to Shoulder and the Honduran government. Shoulder to Shoulder’s American-based physicians and staff are 100% volunteer.
