Modern medicine has given us potent weapons to fight infectious diseases, heart disease, cancer and has greatly reduced the risks women face in childbirth. However, the challenges we face in today's world remain tremendous.

As exciting and fulfilling as life has become, it can also be more exhausting and overwhelming. Never have there been so many resources available to keep us healthy. But finding the information and putting it to work for ourselves and our families is a time-consuming and often daunting task.

That's why we have developed the Community Health Programs, a variety of events dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community through prevention and wellness programs, educational resources, health education seminars and health screenings.

More than 400 people attend Community Health Programs annually, with an average of 25 to 30 attendees per workshop.

Prevention and Education Programs

Our commitment to helping communities lead healthier lives has been the driving force in creating an array of programs to educate people on important health topics and to prevent health problems. We offer educational seminars and health screenings designed to be responsive to the needs and interests of the women in our communities.

Health Education Seminars

Educational programs are scheduled throughout the year to address a variety of topics important to women and families, such as menopause, stress management, parenting and nutrition management.

Health Screenings

We will make information available about upcoming screenings for early detection of diabetes, breast cancer, skin cancer and many other health risks.
