EAGAN, Minn. — Frontline Features presented by Miller Lite is recognizing extraordinary Minnesotans who have overcome challenges to make a difference for others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The series is continued with Dr. Roshan Khatri, the Executive and Medical Director of Headwaters Relief Organization, which is based in Golden Valley.
Dr. Khatri is responsible for the nonprofit's responses to national and international disasters, as well as its program development and daily operations.
The response to the COVID-19 pandemic by Headwaters Relief Organization includes the creation and distribution of When We All Stayed Home, a coloring book to help young people better understand the coronavirus and difficult times.
"We made a coloring book so we could actively engage children when they were staying at home," Dr. Khatri said. "As the children go on through the pages of the book, they explore concepts of the coronavirus and how it affects them, how it is transmitted from one person to another. It also tells them ways they can stay safe."
Dr. Khatri also led Headwaters Relief Organization in responding with a home-school assistance program and a mask-sewing initiative. His leadership and creativity helped to maintain and create relationships and coping strategies for all age groups during these difficult times.
As part of the Frontline Features program, Dr. Khatri received a custom Vikings jersey, autographed memorabilia, gift card to the Minnesota Vikings Locker Room official team store, a Miller Lite cooler and tickets to a 2021 Vikings game.
Thank you, Dr. Khatri, for the work you do in our community and beyond.
