Outer Banks Health is providing free wellness screenings to the community. The screenings cover several important health indicators, including blood pressure, heart rate, cholesterol, blood sugar, and body mass index (BMI). In addition to the screenings, participants can also receive health coaching to help them improve their overall well-being.
Flu vaccines will also be available for individuals between the ages of 18 and 64. However, those who are 65 years and older are encouraged to consult their healthcare provider or visit a local pharmacy for the higher-dose flu vaccines that are recommended for their age group.
To make it convenient for the community, the wellness screenings will be conducted on the Outer Banks Health Coach vehicle. The vehicle will be stationed in the parking lots of various locations. It is highly recommended to schedule an appointment to ensure priority, and appointments can be made by calling 252-449-4529 or using the QR code provided on the flyer.
The times and locations for the screenings can be found on the flyer as well. It is important to note that appointments are highly recommended, so individuals should plan accordingly.
This initiative by Outer Banks Health aims to promote preventive healthcare and encourage individuals to take control of their well-being. By offering free wellness screenings and making flu vaccines accessible, they are ensuring that the community has the opportunity to proactively monitor their health and take preventive measures to stay healthy.
Wellness screenings are crucial in detecting potential health issues early on, allowing for timely intervention and treatment. Health coaching can provide guidance and support to individuals in making positive lifestyle changes, leading to improved overall wellness.
