Community Outreach and Education
"Encouraging healthy lifestyels through education"
Prevention, encouraging healthy lifestyles and helping individuals cope with chronic illness is the focus of Ascension St. John Providence Community Health’s partnerships. Opportunities are available for individuals to learn about good health—what it is and how to achieve it. Screening programs help individuals identify health concerns and provide referrals to health care providers. Through our community education classes, information is provided on health and wellness topics as well as management of chronic illnesses. Our walking programs, in local malls, encourage fitness along with fun ways to learn about keeping healthy. Outreach activities provide resources to assess and improve health status through health fairs and partnerships with community coalitions and organizations.
