Baptist Healthy Communities

What's New at Baptist?

Baptist Memorial Health Care wishes everyone happy holidays and a healthy new year. As you spend time with your loved ones and make new memories, we hope you have time to reflect on your blessings. We also encourage you to consider ways you can help others.

You have been generous partners with us this past year, and we appreciate all of your support. We look forward to working with you in the next year and hope we can continue to work together to give back to our communities through health care screenings and educational programs.

Health News and Information

Diabetes

The holiday and winter season can be particularly challenging when it comes to food. With tempting goodies and more indoor time, it’s harder to maintain a healthy weight. But long after the season is over, health problems continue. So we encourage you to make plans now to manage your health. One of our dietitians offers tips that can help you eat well this holiday season.

Diabetes has become a national epidemic affecting children and adults. Have you ever considered your own risk for developing the disease? Our diabetes assessment is a good start and can help you determine your own risk for developing diabetes.

While the holiday season is a joyous time for some, it can be a challenging time for others. Baptist offers free grief counseling at its two grief centers in Memphis. Please visit the Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation website for more information.
