Screenagers – About the Film
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span?  Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens.  She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction.  Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

Sail away with a book at our Little Free Library

little free library Did you know that our Monticello Clinic has a Little Free Library?  Dr. Vivian Rider, a pediatrician at our Monticello and Albertville-St. Michael clinics created this library with the theme “Sail away with a book” to represent our beautiful lake country.  She created the mosaic on top with hundreds of pieces of glass.

Our library is filled with donated children’s books.  Kids can take home a book every time they visit the clinic.  Families who have books they no longer need help keep the shelves filled.

This concept originated in Hudson, WI in 2009 and there are now over 50,000 Little Free Libraries in the US and more than 70 countries.  And watch for two more coming soon, in our Buffalo and Albertville-St. Michael clinics.

Corey Martin, MD – Bush Fellow 2017

 Corey Martin 2017

The Bush Foundation is proud to introduce Cory Martin, MD, Stellis Health, P. A. as one of twenty four recipients of the 2017 Bush Fellowship. Each Bush Fellow will receive up to $100,000 to pursue the education and experiences they believe will help make them more effective leaders.

“The 2017 Bush Fellows are extraordinary leaders who make significant contributions to their communities. The Bush Fellowship is both a recognition of their accomplishments, and a bet on their potential to make an even bigger impact on our region,” said Bush Foundation President Jennifer Ford Reedy.

The Fellowship is distinctive in its flexibility, allowing each Fellow to create a leadership development plan that is tailored to their needs and ambition. Fellows can use the funding to pursue advanced education, networking opportunities, and leadership resources, workshops and trainings.

The Foundation received nearly 650 applications for the 2017 Bush Fellowship. Applicants described their leadership vision and how a Bush Fellowship would both help them achieve their goals and make their community better. The 2017 Bush Fellows were selected through a multi­ stage process involving past Bush Fellows, Bush Foundation staff and community leaders from across the region.

More than 2,000 people have taken advantage of the Fellowship to become better leaders through a self-designed learning experience, academic program or travel and research across the country to build connections with thought leaders on topics critical to their community. The Bush Fellowship counts among its alumni celebrated Oglala Lakota painter and educator Arthur Douglas Amiotte, internationally-known  artist Judith Onofrio, and f0rmer Minnesota Governor Arne Carlson.

Stellis Health Ranks Among Lowest Cost Clinics in Minnesota

The total cost of care at Stellis Health is 17 percent lower than the Minnesota state average, according to a new report by the Minnesota Community Measurement (MNCM) nonprofit. The report looks at clinic costs across Minnesota and assesses whether the increased costs are the result of clinics charging more or ordering more care like tests, follow-up visits, and prescriptions.

Buffalo, Monticello, and Albertville-St. Michael Clinics Renamed “Stellis Health”

The new Stellis Health logo features a star twinkling at the horizon to symbolize the Latin root meaning of Stellis and the physicians daily calling to watch over our communities health.

Stellis Health is the new name for Buffalo Clinic, Monticello Clinic, and Albertville-St. Michael Clinic. And though you’ll be seeing new signage outside all three clinics, inside, you’ll find the same primary and specialty physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who’ve been treating patients all these years.
