Chatham Co. Health Department to Hold FREE Eye, Ear, Dental & Nutrition Screenings

The Chatham County Health Department located at 1395 Eisenhower Drive, will hold free eye, ear, dental, and nutrition screenings for Chatham County school students on three separate days this summer. Students entering a Georgia school for the first time – no matter what the grade level –  must have a completed Certificate of Vision, Hearing, Dental, and Nutrition screening form. “First time” means never enrolled in a Georgia school before at any time in their lives.

No appointment is necessary and students will be seen on a first come, first served basis. Normally a $30 fee applies when getting the screening at the health department so this is a great opportunity for parents and caregivers.  Immunizations will also be provided during those days for regular cost.

Free screenings will be offered from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., Monday, May 23; from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m., Wednesday, June 15; and from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., Wednesday, July 20. For additional information, call the Chatham County Health Department at 356-2441.

Teaching WIC clients how to prepare healthy meals is just part of what our fabulous nutritionists do!

Let’s Dance, Savannah! Draws a Crowd

Men, women, and children of all ages came out for Let’s Dance, Savannah! 2016 at Savannah Mall to learn more about dancing as a form of exercise.
