August 3, 2018
Valley Professionals Community Health Center is offering free wellness screenings in honor of National Health Center Week held August 13 - 17. Wellness screenings will include BMI, vision, blood pressure, blood glucose, and free dental exam. Screenings are available to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Valley Professionals clinics on the following dates: August 13 - Clinton, August 14 - Cayuga, August 15 - Bloomingdale, August 16 - Rockville, August 17 - Crawfordsville, and August 20 - Terre Haute.

Valley Professionals is hosting free wellness screenings to share thanks and appreciation for their patients, local community members, organizations, and businesses for their continued support, as well as show the importance of available primary, behavioral health, dental, and resource services they are able to provide in a rural population.

National Health Center Week is celebrated annually in August as part of the national observance of celebrating the success of America’s health centers and raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of health centers as local solutions for affordable and accessible health care. Health centers serve more than 27 million people nationwide and are increasingly becoming the trusted provider of choice for many families. Evidence shows patients choose health centers because they are convenient, affordable, and offer a range of services from a team of caring professionals.

"Every day I witness the value our health centers have on our patients, by providing a patient-centered health care home for all,” said T.J. Warren, Valley Professionals CEO. “When patients have a primary care provider they can trust, they are more likely to stay committed to their care, which in turn provides a healthier lifestyle. We provide a range of services on site, including primary care services, behavioral health, and dental services. Our patients not only get the care they need under one roof, but they are treated as individuals, with dignity and respect. This is what health care should be, and what we celebrate during National Health Center Week."

Valley Professionals is a Federally Qualified Health Center that provides comprehensive integrated healthcare for all individuals, while promoting educational opportunities. Visit www.valleyprohealth.org for moreinformation.
