This week, the women residents at UGM-TC are attending a health summit at the shelter hosted by the women of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. Presentations on the following topics will be included in the summit:
Breast Cancer Awareness
Blood Pressure Screening
In addition, our partnership with the Moncrief Cancer Institute continues. The Mobile Mammography Unit will be parked in our lot and available for women to receive free mammograms all day long.
Health is something that so many of us take for granted. When residents first arrive to the Mission, we have them go to the Healing Shepherd Clinic to get a full physical to address any existing or new health conditions they may have. Because of the resources that we can provide our residents, they are able to take care of themselves once again. Whether it is having access to the Clinic, going to MHMR for counseling or attending health education summits like we have this week, it is all about getting our residents the help they need so they may live healthy, self-sufficient lives.
