Health Education Services
SJFMC’s team of medical and dental providers, nurses and support staff offer basic information to patients regarding their health, and the health of their entire family.
We believe that in order for patients to participate in their health care, they should be knowledgeable about the status of their health and ways to improve it. Special programs and classes are conducted for patients diagnosed with diabetes (elevated blood sugar) and hypertension (high blood pressure). Information is provided to pregnant women to help them through their pregnancy and to assure healthy outcomes for their newborn babies.
Written materials are available for most medical conditions and diseases, with specific information to help patients learn more about their health and prescribed treatment.
SJFMC’s educational programs also feature:
- Blood Pressure and Blood Sugar Screenings
- HIV / AIDS Education and Counseling
- Asthma Screenings and Counseling
