Well Woman

PROJECT

Well Woman exams are the foundation for wellness, health promotion, and disease identification and management throughout your life.  This is particularly true for women 40 years of age and older when incidence rates for breast and cervical cancer along with other medical concerns (such as heart disease, cholesterol, and diabetes) tend to increase.

 

This project is designed for women 40 – 64 years of age who are working, but without health insurance coverage. The Well Woman Project focuses on the most common health concerns for women, including:  General Medical Health, Breast Cancer Screening, Cervical Cancer Screening, and Exercise and Nutrition.

 

Healthy Lifestyle

PROJECT

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the US for adults. Worldwide 1 in 3 adults have high blood pressure. The Health Clinic provides patients with ongoing diagnostic testing and consultation including vital signs such as high blood pressure and heart rate, cholesterol level screening, thyroid exams, and blood sugar and diabetes management. Education materials are available to anyone for information on heart attack, stroke, quitting smoking and other health risks that can affect heart health. Healthcare professionals consult patients about preventative care such as medication directions, healthy diet, physical activity, avoiding tobacco, alcohol and harmful substances, and managing stress. Heart Healthy Diet and Nutrition and Exercise and Walking programs are offered to the general public.

Get Tested!

PROJECT

The Shoals Community Clinic partners with the Alabama Department of Public Health to provide the public free testing and screening for COVID-19 & rapid testing, Sexually Transmitted Infections, and HIV/AIDS. These services can be obtained through the clinic on a walk in basis and are completely confidential. It is important that everyone be empowered and responsible to know their status and avoid risky health behavior.

Community Garden & Nutrition

PROJECT

The Community Garden, located on the clinic grounds, was started with funding and support from the Florence Housing Authority, the Shoals Master Gardeners, and the First Presbyterian Church. Residents from public housing and the residents of West Florence have the opportunity to grow nutritious vegetables for their families. Some of the plants and seeds have been provided by the Community Action Agency’s TVA Gardening Project. There is also a partnership program with Shoals Common Cause for children and youth to learn to grow vegetables and understand the foundation of nutrition diet and eating.
