Tri-County Health Network Offers Free WISEWOMAN™ Health Screenings
The Tri-County Health Network (TCHN) and the Regional Medical Center (RMC) will offer free WISEWOMAN™ health screenings and lifestyle education to 160 women ages 40 – 64 years old on Sunday, December 10, from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm at RMC Urgent Care – Santee located at 111 John Lawson Ave.
The WISEWOMAN™ (Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation) health screening aims to help low-income women reduce their risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. The screening will include blood work, and all patients will be referred for follow-up care with a RMC Primary Care provider.
Licensed Practical Nursing Students from Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College will be available to assist patients at the screening. The WISEWOMAN™ program is provided by the Center for Disease Control and provided by grant funding from the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control at no cost to TCHN or RMC.
