Congregational Health Ministry is the outreach arm of Inner City Health Center. The program provides access and continuity of quality healthcare by reaching out to local church congregations and community ministries. Focus is health promotion, disease prevention, education on Breast and Cervical Cancers, and early detection of heart disease and diabetes in high-risk populations.
Congregational Health Ministry can provide:
- Health screenings at churches or community events at no charge
- Blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol, diabetes, pulse ox screenings
- Registered nurses provide immediate education regarding results
- Referrals to Inner City Health Center for follow up care
- CPR and First Aid training classes for a nominal fee
- Church bulletin inserts on a variety of health topics
- Assistance starting a Health Ministry in your church
- Breast and Cervical Cancer education and guidance for women. Our mission is to turn education into action – offering referrals for getting screened for both breast and cervical Cancers. Of particular concern are statistics showing those living in poverty are less likely to get screened for breast or cervical cancers, those living in poorer neighborhoods (and are uninsured) presented more advanced cancers when screened, and were more likely to die within the first five years following cancer diagnosis.
