CTK’s Community Health Initiative General 

 

Community health and general health information can be found on the bulletin board across from the Nurses office. Also, check under “Connecting” on our website. I also have many informational pamphlets and flyers located in the Nurse’s office. Room 116. Any staff member can open the room, so you can peruse the information and take home, if you wish. 

CTK also has a Community Health Facebook page – Click on the link and like us if you would like to receive updates.

Health Cabinet Openings

We have openings to join the Health Cabinet. We meet monthly on Wednesdays at 7:30pm. If you have any interest in the Wellness Wheel (Spiritual, Social, Emotional, Physical, Financial, Vocational, Intellectual), this is a great committee to be on.   You do not have to be “Magazine Healthy” to join us. We are all struggling. 

 
Bloomington Health and Wellness Award
Thank you to Jean Butala for nominating the Health Cabinet and me for the Bloomington Health and Wellness Award. The award is to be presented to us on April 3rd at the City Council Meeting. Our congregation has so much love and the diligence to problem solve and bring forth all that we can to reach out to our community. We do not do it for awards and accolades, but it helps to know we are making a difference and people notice! Thank you to everyone who made and continues to make things happen and for supporting the Health Cabinets efforts. God bless you all.

 

Eye Glasses

Keep donating your eyeglasses. Good things happen when you do! CTK just donated 2 bags of glasses to the Philippine Medical Mission Organization, a Non-Profit with 501 (c) 3 designation. www.philippinemedicalmissions.org/. Their goal is to raise 9,000 pairs of eyeglasses for their mission trip to Bais City in 2018. They will be collecting through August.  Please reach out to your friends to donate, so they can meet their goal.

 

Flu Clinic

We will be offering a Flu Shot Clinic on Wednesday, October 4th from 4:30-6:30pm. There will be no Flu-mist this year because it is not recommended by CDC.  It was not very effective.  We will have the High Dose but that depends on the shipping of it as to when we have it. 

 

Chronic Conditions and Caregiver Support

Please let me know if you are interested in attending a Chronic Conditions or Caregiver support classes this Fall. They are both great programs and would like to offer if I have some takers. To those that attended the Chronic Conditions Classes last spring, we will have a support group with potluck and sharing of our successes and what we want to work on. This will be held on October 15th at 11:45 am in the lounge.
