Annually the Wellness Center sponsors a variety of free screenings for the community. Early detection is the key to having the best possible outcome for many medical conditions. Managing many health conditions found through early detection allows for better quality of life and easier disease management.
Dates and times are posted on the website calendar and in the local newspapers.
Stress, constantly chaginging in shifts in your work, and age-related sleep disturbances are just a few factors that can interfere with your ability to obtain the proper sleep you need to fully function. Sleep is vital for learning and memory, and how lack of sleep impacts our health, safety, and longevity.
Mammogram Screenings are held annually in October. The National Cancer Institute recommends that women age 40 or older should have screening mammograms every 1 to 2 years.
Women that qualify receive a free screening mammogram and education about breast self-exam. To qualify you must be a woman between the ages of 40 – 65, have no insurance to cover mammograms, and never have had a mammogram.
All screenings will be held on Saturdays at 11am in the Neuse Room. This free clinic is for men & women age 40 and up who have never been screened for or had colorectal cancer. The clinic will be led by members of the WellAware team and the UNC Lenoir Gastro staff.
Registration is now open for December.
You may qualify for a lung cancer screening if you have a history of heavy smoking currently or have quit within the past 15 years, and are between 55 and 77 years old currently with no symptoms of lung cancer.
Evidence suggests that this screening program would detect approximately one half of lung cancer cases at an early stage, at which surgery with curative intent is an option.
If you feel you qualify for a lung cancer screening ask your physician if it is the right thing for you. Physician referral is Required.
