We’d like to thank everyone who came to FARMACY and made our first class such a success! It’s a privilege to once again be part of the FARMACY Program in Ritchie County.
The 10-week program is part of an effort to increase access to fresh produce for individuals ages 18 to 70 who have not previously been diagnosed with hypertension, stroke, or cancer. In addition to nutritious food items, the program provides a weekly 30-minute class that will include food demos, recipes, and information about hypertension, stroke, and cancer; as well as offers free health screenings for a1C, blood pressure, lipids, and weight on the first and tenth weeks.
Shout out to our staff for all their hard work, especially Chronic Care and Quality Data Coordinator, Mary Spencer!
Since June is Men’s Health Month and Father’s Day is right around the corner, we’d like to take a moment to highlight the importance of an issue that is often overlooked: men’s health.
Although men suffer from both physical and mental health ailments, they are less likely to schedule regular checkups and seek the help they need. While there’s no absolute answer to why that is, one reason is that men are often taught to suppress their emotions and to be strong and tough. They may feel like they are not supposed to show weakness or vulnerability. Another reason is that men may not know where to get help or they may not think that they can afford it.
That’s where we come in! Ritchie Regional Health Center has a whole team of dedicated professionals who provide a full range of healthcare services. Whether it’s an annual wellness visit, lab work, or a therapy session - our compassionate staff has you covered!
PLUS, we accept most insurance plans (including Medicaid and Medicare) and offer payment plans as well as the Sliding Fee Scale, so you can get the care you need without having to worry about the cost.
To all the men out there: YOUR HEALTH MATTERS! More people care about you than you may realize. Whatever your healthcare needs are, don’t delay, and make an appointment with us today!
To schedule an appointment, call or text (304) 643-4005 or find an RRHC campus near you.
