Amidst all the excitement of the 40th Anniversary of CHC together with the opening of the new building in Middletown, it is easy to overlook many of the great ongoing programs at CHC.
Next Tuesday, New Horizons Domestic Violence Services is starting new support groups for children and adults in Middletown. The groups are free and confidential. If you or anyone you know is interested please pass this information along to them. Call 860-344-9599 for info.
Also next Tuesday, a new group for our Food Smart and Fit program will begin in New London. Designed for women and adolescent girls concerned about their weight, FoodSmart and Fit will help you adopt healthier eating habits and become more active. Each week will include fun activities, snacks and raffle prizes. Space is limited and enrollment will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Patients should speak with their providers about participating in this group.
This month is also National Hepatitis Awareness Month. Our Oasis Center is doing Hepatitis C testing all week at the Rushford Center and in the community. We now have rapid Hepatitis C tests available at Oasis and anyone can call for an appointment and get both HIV and Hepatitis C tests in 20 minutes. For more information, call 860-347-6971 X 3908.
As we continued so many great ongoing programs, we are also starting new programs. This week and next week, there will are special activities for patients and guests in our new building. Please, come by and check some of them out.
