Baptist Healthy Communities

What's New at Baptist?

Baptist Healthy Communities

We’re already halfway through summer break, which makes this a great time to start preparing your kids for the new school year. They’ll need physicals, immunizations and eye and dental exams. You can beat the back-to-school rush by scheduling these appointments now. If you need a pediatrician, visit our Find a Doctor page. If you or members of your congregation need help preparing, plan to attend one of the free back-to-school health fairs mentioned in our events section. If you attend one of these health fairs, please share your pictures on social media with the hashtag BaptistHealthyCommunities. We’ll feature photos in next month’s newsletter.

If you are interested in signing up for Baptist Healthy Communities and have not already done so, please visit baptistcommunities.org. For more information or to make sure your faith organization is on our list, please contact us at 901-227-3512 or annmarie.wallace@bmhcc.org.
