The Health Education team is located at both the Wesley Health & Wellness Center (WHWC) and the Bishop Ernest T. Dixon Jr. Clinic. Patients are referred to health educators by the clinic providers at each location.
In 2010, Health Educators were extended to include both Registered Nurses (RN) and Registered Dietitians (RD). With this change health educators expanded their programming to include:
- newly diagnosed diabetic classes;
- adult/diabetic weight loss classes;
- cardiac classes; and
- healthy eating/cooking demonstrations.
Services are provided to clients in one-to-one, group and community outreach settings.
