Project Description

Preventative Healthcare – In these complicated financial times, you need a
healthcare provider that not only cares about your healthcare but also cares
about your healthcare expenses. Open Arms offers free preventive screenings
year-round through its Becoming a Healthier U Program. The Becoming a
Healthier U Program is a Community Health Team led initiative that aims to
provide an integrated, comprehensive community-based and clinical healthcare
approach for improving community health. The Becoming a Healthier U Program
provides patients with a series of preventive health screenings as well as a
variety of preventive mental and sexual health counseling. Services include
screenings for:

  • Blood Pressure
  • Body Mass Index / Weight
  • Cholesterol Levels
  • Glucose Levels
  • HIV
  • STD (Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis)
  • Substance abuse
  • High-risk sexual behaviors
  • Health risk assessments (Breast, cervical, and prostate cancer; Sleep Apnea)

Becoming a Healthier U’s patients are also linked to a Community Health Worker who
will "navigate" the patient through the healthcare system to ensure appropriate and
timely care. The Community Health Worker will work with the patient at the onset of
the visit to initiate prevention messages, identify their barriers to healthcare and
connect the patient to Open Arms clinical and social services, research opportunities,
and quality clinical service referrals.
