Public health

support appreciated

Dear editor:

The Dawson County Health Department would like to thank everyone who supported us during our annual blood draws. Your continued support allows us to offer a variety of outreach programs to Glendive, Dawson County and the surrounding communities. These include home health programs for the elderly and homebound. Parents as Teachers, The Nurturing Tree and the Car Seat for Kids Programs provide resources for new moms and children under the age of 5.

We also offer vaccinations for both children and adults. Reproductive health services in the form of annual well-woman exams and routine pap smears as well as a wide variety of birth control options including oral contraceptives, Nexplanon implants and IUDs are also offered by the Health Department. We offer no-hassle insurance billing and services are offered at an affordable cost. Every Wednesday morning, the Health Department offers Lab on Demand and a free blood pressure clinic. These affordable lab tests include A1c, CMP, CBC, PSA, Vitamin D, TSH, Anemia Panel, and Hepatitis Screening to name just a few of the available screenings.

The Dawson County Health Department is committed to excellence in protecting, promoting, and enhancing the health and well-being of all people. We provide quality services to all people and work to ensure the health and safety of our community and environment through the promotion of health and prevention of disease. Your support of Public Health allows us to continue this mission.

Thank you, again, for your continued support.
