On September 14, NOC and its valued health and wellness partners provided health screening and referral services during a free clinic at the Lowcountry Presbyterian Church in Bluffton. The church generously provided space for NOC to conduct its free health clinic for children and adults in need. During this event more than 130 people were screened for diabetes, blood pressure, cancer, dental health, vision, and HIV/AIDS. Many individuals received vital referral information relating to health care (VIM referrals, healthy minds, and drug and alcohol). These beneficiaries lack timely access to affordable health care.
This highly successful event would not have been possible without the support of NOC’s partners – Beaufort Memorial Hospital, DHEC, VIM/HHI, VIM/Bluffton and Jasper, LIONS Club, DMH, Coastal Empire Community, BC Alcohol & Drug Abuse Dept., ROC Dental Group—as well as NOC staff & Board members, volunteers, and friends.
NOC is very grateful to these entities and individuals for their dedicated support to help those who are in need and those who are vulnerable. NOC will continue to provide this important service periodically.
