Health News and Information

2020 Health Care Vision

January is a good time to make sure you’ve scheduled all your health screenings for the year. The screenings you need may vary by your age, sex and family history. The following two Baptist Better Health blog posts provide a checklist of recommended screenings for men and women. Start 2020 off right by making your health a priority and getting your health screenings scheduled early.

First Responders Support Group

Being the first on an emergency scene can be emotionally and physically draining for medical, fire and law enforcement agents. These situations can have long-term effects, especially over time. To help first responders cope with these unique challenges, CONCERN Employee Assistance Program is starting a confidential and free support group on Jan. 21, 2020. It is open to current and retired first responders. For more information, please call 901-338-6256.
