VNASC Wellness Program
What is Wellness? Wellness is a positive approach to life and health that involves the “whole” person;wellness can also be described as a dynamic state of health.
One of VNASC’s Core Values is to share responsibility with the community for improving its health status. This value is realized through VNASC’s Wellness Program. Our Wellness Services include screening clinics, health fairs, health education, and immunization clinics throughout Southeastern Connecticut. Screenings may include blood pressure checks; cholesterol tests; glucose tests; and/or height, weight, and body mass index measurements. Health education sessions may include topics such as nutrition; stress management; arthritis; weight management; first aid; cancer; diabetes; smoking cessation; heart health; stroke prevention; and blood borne pathogens. VNASC offers wellness services for all ages whether it be a baby who needs an immunization; a preteen who is learning how to become a “Safe Sitter”; an adult who is receiving support and education on how to stop smoking; or an elderly person who comes to one of our many blood pressure clinics for ongoing blood pressure monitoring. Services are provided by one of our Wellness nurses – RN’s who work with members of the community to help improve their health.
