The Tri-County Health Network and the Regional Medical Center will offer free WiseWOMAN™ health screenings and lifestyle education to 160 women ages 40 – 64 years old from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 10, at RMC Urgent Care, Santee, 111 John Lawson Ave.
The WiseWOMAN™ (Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for WOMen Across the Nation) health screening aims to help low-income women reduce their risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. The screening will include bloodwork, and all patients will be referred for follow-up care with a RMC Primary Care provider.
Licensed Practical Nursing Students from Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College will be available to assist patients at the screening. The WiseWOMAN™ program is provided by the Center for Disease Control and provided by grant funding from the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control at no cost to TCHN or RMC.
For more information, contact TCHN Executive Director Melissa Sherman at 803-395-2166, or RMC Grant Coordinator Phillip Ford at 803-395-2700.
