Please take time to read our HCV RISK FACTOR questionnaire to see if you need to be screened for hepatitis. If you answer yes to any of the questions, you need to be tested. Healing Hands is currently offering hepatitis panel screenings to the general public for only $30. We are also offering free blood pressure checks during regular business hours.
Hepatitis panel screenings are by appointment only. The clinic accepts cash, credit cards, and debit cards only. We do not bill insurance. Call 706-994-6768 for appointment.
Go to www.cdc.gov to learn more about undiagnosed and untreated hepatitis.
Handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick. Just in time for cold and flu season, it is a fantastic way to promote better hygiene and reduce respiratory illnesses -- particularly with little ones. Learn more about killing germs and about hand sanitizers at the Center for Disease Control.
Healing Hands Community Clinic had a great time walking in the 20187 Sorghum Festival Parade in Blairsville, Georgia on October 14th.
September is Hunger Action Month -- Georgia Mountain Food Bank and food banks across the country in the Feeding America Network are spreading awareness of the 1 in 7 Americans who struggle with hunger. We challenge you all to spread awareness and join the movement to fight hunger in America.
What a great time we had at the 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament! Thank you to Chick-Fil-A for the awesome food! Congratulations to the winning team (left to right) Cody Ching, Dave Bristol, Daniel Liberatore and Scott Carter.
We put out the word out on a Monday that we were in need of a lifesaving Automated External Defibrillator and BAM, by Thursday we had raised all of the money and ordered the machine! We are so blessed to be a part of a loving and generous mountain family.
The 1st Annual Golf Tournament was a great success. Thanks to all of our sponsors, players, and volunteers!

Since 1970, January has been known as National Blood Donor Month. It's a time when blood organizations like the American Red Cross pay tribute to the nearly 11 million people who give blood each year, and encourage others to start the New Year off right by coming to give the gift of life.
November is Diabetes Awareness month. Anyone can walk into Healing Hands Community Clinic during business hours through the month of November for a free glucose check. They do not have to be uninsured. (We will be closed the Saturday after Thanksgiving.)
October is National Healthy Lung Month. Everything from pollen and mold to cigarette smoke can harm the lungs. Protecting your lungs is important to overall health. Call us today to find out about our free smoking cessation program.

August is Psoriasis Awareness Month. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. It typically affects the outside of the elbows, knees or scalp, though it can appear on any location. Some people report that psoriasis is itchy, burns and stings. Psoriasis is associated with other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and depression. Learn more at www.psoriasis.org.
July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month. It is a common misconception that only “old” people are afflicted with arthritis. Nearly 300,000 children in America have been diagnosed with juvenile arthritis.
June is Cataract Awareness Month! Cataract is a clouding of the eye's lens which blocks or changes the passage of light into the eye. Unlike many eye diseases, however, vision loss due to cataract can be restored. Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States and has a 95 percent success rate. And, a new study found that cataract surgery patients had a significantly reduced rate of hip fractures from falls. For more information visit PreventBlindness.org.
April is ORAL CANCER AWARENESS MONTH! Stop by the clinic during regular business hours through the month of April and pick up a free toothbrush, trial size toothpaste, tote bag (while supplies last), and oral cancer awareness information. We look forward to seeing you.
This May, Mental Health America is calling on you to share what life with a mental illness feels like - MHA want you to speak up, to share your point of view with people who may be struggling to explain what they are going through—and help others figure out if they too are showing signs of a mental illness. Sharing is the key to breaking down negative attitudes and misperceptions surrounding mental illnesses and to showing others that they are not alone in their feelings and their symptoms.
