NOC’s neighborhood health screening on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, on Hilton Head Island attracted many children and adults who lack health insurance and easy access to affordable and timely health care.
This event was carried out in collaboration with NOC’s traditional partner agencies from the health sector in Beaufort County. More than 140 screenings and consultations for hypertension, diabetes, vision, HIVAID, dental care, cancer, and mental health took place over a two-hour period, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 p.m. The demand for this service was extremely high; and more than 45 individuals were unable to receive any screenings. NOC will help these individuals to participate in its next sponsored screening.
NOC is highly appreciative of the involvement of its partner agencies – Beaufort Memorial Hospital, Lions Club, DEHEC, VIM, and DMH – who helped make this important event so successful. NOC’s field team and volunteers did an outstanding job in assisting people and supporting various health service providers at the event.
