Health Ministry Update

Posted by on Dec 11, 2013 in Announcement, Health Ministry |

“The November 9th free screening and melanoma forum at Atonement was a huge success.  Writer Connie Crooker [the “Melanoma Mamma”] told a supportive audience about her battle with melanoma and the treatments which gave her an  “extended expiration date.” This gave her an opportunity for a solo tent camping trip across the country and book she wrote about her health and camping journeys.
Two doctors from the Samaritan hospitals in Corvallis, assisted by our Parish Nurse, Lynn Moody and Terri McCulley from Health Ministry, screened a record 55 people.  18 received suggestions for follow up attention – a record 33%, and possibly 18 lives saved!
The Health Ministry team and our wonderful Kitchen Krew provided yummy snacks throughout the event.
