The Initiative Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of new staff members in its ongoing effort to advance economic and community development and philanthropic giving in its 14-county region of Central Minnesota.
Terri Konczak, Big Lake joins the Initiative Foundation team as an early childhood dental network specialist. She is a graduate of Concordia University, St. Paul, with a degree in early childhood development.
Konczak leads the Initiative Foundation’s launch of an Early Childhood Dental Network in Central Minnesota. This new initiative will collaborate with regional and local organizations to increase oral health awareness and education and to improve dental care access in Central Minnesota. 
The overarching goal is to develop strategies to address the oral health issues of children ages 0-5, especially our neediest children, including those for whom poverty, geography, language or culture is a barrier to receiving affordable, quality dental care.
