Emory in Your Community – Free Wellness Screenings

nurses screening patientsIn order to improve the health of our communities, Emory Healthcare in partnership with the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church (UMC) recently launched a community wellness screening program in early October. Emory nurses provide wellness screenings for congregation members and the local community at selected United Methodist churches in the metro-Atlanta area. As an added bonus, on the Wednesday, November 19th wellness screening at Smyrna First, Emory nurses will also be providing free flu shots for congregation and local community members. Make a commitment to get your flu shot to ward off the flu this year.

Wellness screenings include:

  • Blood Pressure
  • Height/ Weight/ Body Mass Index
  • Cholesterol
  • Blood Glucose
  • Nutrition Consultation
  • General Health Education & Smoking Cessation Information

These screenings are FREE and open to the public for adults ranging from 16 years of age and up. You may attend any of the locations / dates listed below. And let your friends and other family members know about this exciting new endeavor.

Reservations are strongly recommended, however walk-ins are welcome. To register, please call Emory HealthConnection™ at 404-778-7777 or visit online at emoryhealthcare.org/events (search wellness screening). Below are the available screenings for the remainder of 2014.
