Glynn County Health Department Takes Part in Health Fair

The Glynn County Health Department participated in a health fair sponsored by Southeast Georgia Health System (SGHS) at Brunswick High School. The health department partnered  with SGHS to provide mobile mammograms at the event. The Georgia Breast and Cervical Cancer Program and Susan G. Komen Coastal Georgia Affiliate funded mammograms for those who met certain criteria and eight women received mammograms at the health fair. Health department representatives also spent time educating those at the health fair about the importance of mammograms and other services offered through Glynn County Health Department. Everyone who had a mammogram was entered in a chance to win a beach bag full of beach necessities.

Partners Come Together for Functional Medical Needs Exercise

The Glynn County Health Department, along with a host of community partners including the Glynn County Emergency Management Agency, recently came together to test the Functional Medical Needs Registry evacuation procedures.

The registry is made up of residents who may require transport and medical assistance during a hurricane evacuation and have no other resources such as family, friends, neighbors, or church members to help them if they need to evacuate. Residents must apply to be on the registry.

Those on the Registry will be evacuated to an American Red Cross shelter (not a hotel) that will likely be in a gymnasium or similar setting. The Registry is truly a last resort, but if a hurricane is threatening our area, it is important local Emergency Management Agency and health department officials know where the most vulnerable residents are located so that evacuation assistance can be provided to them.
