GoPHR (Global Online Personal Health Resource) is a web-based software program that Individuals can use to gather, organize and securely store all their health information in one safe place. It’s easy to use – you get a personal online account and simply input information much like you would at a doctor’s office.
GoPHR has provided 1,000 free accounts to the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona so that you may enjoy the benefits of a program like this.
· GoPHR can keep you safer in an emergency – EMTs have quick access to medical information that can be vital in the event of an emergency.
· GoPHR is also a great convenience. You can store everything, from Immunization records to birth certificates all in one safe place – and have access to them anytime, anywhere you have an internet connection.
· GoPHR also promotes healthy habits. Our daily journals help people to keep better track of nutrition, fitness, vitals and even diabetes if you track medications and glucose levels. The more you use GoPHR, the more involved you are in your health and
wellness – and that promotes better health.
To receive a free GoPHR account, please email email@example.com and we will provide you with a free access code and instructions to register. We encourage Girl Scouts and their Families to participate.

GIRL SCOUT COMMITTEE OF 100 MEMBER AND COUNTY ATTORNEY BARBARA LAWALL ANNOUNCES
APRIL AS A MONTH OF AWARENESS AND ACTION TO AID VICTIMS OF CRIME
(Tucson, Arizona) Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall encourages the community to participate this April in the many different outreach and educational activities that support victims of crime and promote efforts to prevent violence.
“April is a time to ensure victims of crime get the support and assistance they need and to raise awareness about how these crimes impact not only the individual victims, but our entire community. We must work together to make Pima County a place where everyone is free to participate fully in the life of our community without fear for their safety or that of their loved ones.” said LaWall.
April is both Sexual Assault Awareness Month and National Child Abuse Prevention Month. These crimes are all too common in our communities and too often go underreported and victims do not get the help they need. April is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about the devastating impact of sexual assault and child abuse and take steps, as a community, to better support survivors while working to reduce and eliminate these crimes.
April 21-27th is also National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. This year’s theme – New Challenges, New Solutions – recognizes that while the issues facing crime victims continue to change, the Victims’ Rights movement continues to mature to better respond to these emerging needs. “I am proud of the new programs and initiatives that my office has implemented in the past few years to provide new solutions to these new challenges.” said LaWall.
Some of these innovations include:
The Pima County Attorney’s Office has a list of outreach and educational activities that will take place in April, which can be downloaded at www.pcao.pima.gov/victimservicesdivision.aspx. County Attorney LaWall urges everyone to participate in these community activities that support crime victims, support the work of non-profit agencies that help victims, and help promote violence prevention efforts.

Congrats on a fabulous cookie season!
Kindergarten Daisy Troop 472 sold 480 boxes of cookies this year – AWESOME!! Pretty great considering we only expected each girl to sell 20 boxes since it was their first year – well done everyone, so proud of you!! As part of our community service efforts, we used some
of our cookie profits to purchase books from the Scholastic Book Fair which the teachers selected the kindergarten classrooms
at Painted Sky! We had enough money to buy 20 books – 5 books for each classroom!! The girls had so much fun choosing all the books. We labeled each book so that kiddos for years to come would know that our awesome Daisy Troop bought them. The best part is our school also receives a percentage of the profits of all the books sold at the book fair to buy even MORE books for our school and library.
So proud of the girls for all their hard work, and the moms too And special thanks to our amazing and super organized cookie mom Jen Olson, you rock!!
