ANNUAL HEALTH SCREENING DAY AT BOZEMAN DEACONESS HEALTH SERVICES THIS SATURDAY

MARCH 24, 2014
As part of its mission “To improve community health and quality of life,” Bozeman Deaconess Health Services once again is holding its annual Health Screening Day on Saturday, March 29, from 7 am-1 pm, offering free and reduced price health screening and wellness tips for the whole family.

Many of the popular free screenings such as bone density, glucose, hearing and heart rate will be offered, while new options include oral cancer checks, varicose veins risk, leg and grip strength and skin analysis. Information on radiology procedures such as low-dose CT scans for lung cancer, advance directives, organ donation, support groups and more will be available, along with the chance to discuss current medications with pharmacists and safely dispose of unused prescription drugs. Adults also may experience how vision is impaired with excess alcohol by trying out “drunk goggles,” learn Hands-Only CPR, and get a chair massage.

Children can attend fitness activities such as “Go Noodle” zumba, explore an ambulance, medical helicopter and highway patrol car, learn to escape a “smoke” house, and get a removable tattoo or their face painted at no charge. With bike season approaching, children are encouraged to bring along their bike helmets to make sure they still fit properly for free, or new helmets can be purchased for $15.

To soothe those morning hunger pangs and in support of healthy eating habits, staff members from BDHS and Kohl’s will be assisting children in making healthy breakfast yogurt parfaits, as part of Kohl’s Kids Eat Smart. And since BDHS wants to keep kids safe, parents can get a free digital fingerprint and photo ID of their child, and may have their child’s blood typed for only $20.

The popular blood screenings for adults which require fasting for 12-14 hours prior to testing again will be offered, including general health screen, prostate cancer, blood sugar levels, colon cancer indicators, risk of heart disease, Vitamin B and Vitamin D levels, and blood and Rh type. Charges for these tests, ranging between $15 and $30, are not submitted to insurance companies but receipts will be provided.

“This is an easy and affordable way for the whole family to get checked out for some medical issues at one time,” said Beverly Macmillan, BDHS Marketing Outreach Coordinator. “Moms, dads and kids can be screened and learn lots of valuable medical facts on prevention and treatments, all while having fun.”

Family Medicine

REACH OUT AND READ: SUPPORTING LITERACY IN OUR COMMUNITY

Getting books from the doctor is a routine part of regular pediatric checkups at Bozeman Deaconess Family Medicine & Pediatrics. At every regular checkup, children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years receive a new, age-appropriate book to take home and keep. Volunteers read with children in pediatric clinic waiting areas. Pediatricians and family practitioners educate parents about the importance of reading with their children every day.

FAMILY MEDICINE

Generally speaking, a family medicine doctor is a full spectrum physician who treats all members of the family providing continuous and comprehensive health care.

Bozeman Deaconess Family Medicine physicians deliver a range of acute, chronic, and preventive medical care services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunizations, and screening tests, as well as personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family physicians manage chronic illness, while coordinating care provided by other sub specialists.

Our family medicine physicians enjoy being a part of the whole family. Knowing the dynamics of multiple generations and caring for each is part of their approach to good medical care for the entire family.

Medical Home

Medical Home is a team-led, patient-centered approach to health care, where the patient is the most important player on their healthcare team. The patient and the medical home team develop a plan of care created specifically for the patient, focuses on wellness and prevention, keeps the patient connected with the health care team and coordinates care with other health care providers.

Bozeman Deaconess Bridger Internal Medicine, Bozeman Deaconess Spinelli Internal Medicine, Bozeman Deaconess Internal Medicine Associates and Bozeman Deaconess Family Medicine and Pediatrics are recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term participative relationships. Notably, the Bozeman Deaconess Health Group clinics are the first in the State of Montana to earn Level III Medical Home Recognition. Click here for more information on medical home.
