We are into the second month of 2023 and January has passed by very quickly; nevertheless, we continue to focus on our goals at NVIH. In January of this year, we began offering podiatry services in the following locations; Willows, Woodland Gibson, and Chico Concord. We have received great feedback as our providers have been doing a fantastic job in that department. If you think you may benefit from seeing a podiatrist, please work with your medical provider to see if a referral may be right for you. Physical Therapy has also been up and running with providers seeing patients at the Woodland Gibson and Chico Concord locations. We look forward to offering new services throughout our NVIH Clinics.
February is American Heart Month, and it is a time when the nation focuses on the critical need to keep individuals free from heart disease. You can follow us on our social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram & LinkedIn) for more information on monthly awareness days. This medium is one of many ways we are here to share, support, and keep our community informed so that you can participate when and if you feel called to it. Keep an eye out on our social media for informative posts, tips and discussions related to heart health throughout the month of February.
NVIH will be participating in National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 3rd. Wear Red Day is an iconic day for American Heart Month geared toward heart health awareness for women. We encourage you to show support by wearing red and to learn about the risks of heart disease. Let’s all work together to learn to promote healthy habits for ourselves and the women in our lives.
Wishing you a healthy month!
CEO, Northern Valley Indian Health
