Wellness and Health-Promotion Clinics

Held in public places such as pharmacies or community events, VON Wellness and Health Promotion clinics offer screening tests and assessment of cholesterol, blood pressure, body-mass index and other indicators of potential health problems. Individual counselling focuses on education and raising awareness on topics such as heart health, diabetes, asthma, allergies and osteoporosis. 

Why it Matters: 

Prevention is the best medicine, that’s why we believe in providing opportunities to learn about some of the most prevalent conditions that impact our lives. Our nurses engage with clients in their communities to offer screenings and advice to keep them healthy.
