Health First Cooperative
Sep 18 @ 8:30 am – 2:00 pm

Every Tuesday morning, many of you stop in the Conference Room to see one of our team of nurses, pharmacist, dietitian, social worker or therapists.

Anyone is welcome who has a health complaint, a nagging problem, or just has a desire to get better acquainted with their own health and learn how to do better self-management.  We have an expert team to help with new or existing health problems: to do regular blood pressure checks; to answer questions about medications or their side effects; to evaluate mobility problems such as weakness, poor balance or risk for falls.

To schedule an appointment with Health First Cooperative, contact them at the Sanford Wellness Center at 605-328-1600.
