News Radio 1240 KQEN reported today on an upcoming visit to the newly opened North Douglas County Family Medicine Clinic. Families participating in our Early Works initiative at Yoncalla Elementary School will visit the clinic on August 1.
Umpqua Community Health Center said the tours are designed to provide health and wellness education, dampen fears commonly associated with clinic visits, and create awareness in the community for services that are offered at the facility. That clinic opened up earlier this month to address unmet healthcare needs in the region, according to the release.
UCHC’s Outreach and Enrollment staff will also be on hand to serve as a resource for community members who do not currently have health insurance to assist them with sign up.
KC Bolton, CEO of UCHC said the opportunity to interact with families is “yet another chance for us to engage, educate and in many ways demystify the experience patients have when they walk through our doors”.
