Making Our Mark II - Youth Training
On Wednesday, December 3rd the Henry County Health Center presented a program titled “Making Our Mark II” to 30 Windsor and Clinton High School/Middle School students and their three teacher Mentors, Bethany Moss, Hannah Williams and Liane Hager. This program was funded by a grant from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) and Tobacco Free Missouri. The training was developed by members (high school students) of the Tobacco Free Missouri Youth Advisory Board and was designed to educate and empower students to promote tobacco prevention efforts among their peers and in their community. The training was interactive with students learning about the health hazards of tobacco, creating counter tobacco ads and using social media to support tobacco prevention efforts. Following the training students will be actively conducting tobacco prevention programs in the schools and their community. Special thanks for assistance from Tiffany Tuua, MO DHSS and Dana Hall, Pathways Community Health for their help in the training.
Onsite Septic Operation and Maintenance Manual Now Available
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Bureau of Environmental Health Services has published an Onsite Wastewater Treatment System Owner’s Manual. It is a guidance document developed to provide a comprehensive overview of the mechanics, operation, and MAINTENANCE of onsite wastewater treatment system components commonly utilized in Missouri (your rural septic system). Users of the manual can expect to find information about how system components work as well as recommended maintenance. Each system is unique and so is this manual. With each chapter focusing on one system component a homeowner, registered onsite wastewater treatment system professional, or qualified service provider can use selected chapters from this manual to custom design an operation and maintenance manual tailored for a particular site and system. Rural home septic systems are not like municipal sewer systems, they require homeowner maintenance to function properly.
The Manual is available on the program website under “manuals” at http://health.mo.gov/living/environment/onsite/pdf/SystemOwnersManual.pdf
Henry County Health Center and Pathways Community Health
Sign Lease to Co-Locate Services
The Henry County Health Center and Pathways Community Health signed a lease agreement August 28th to co-locate after a renovation of the current Pathways’ facility located at 1800 Community Drive in Clinton.
The Henry County Health Center provides nursing services such as flu shots, immunizations, STI testing as well as many other services and programs such as vital record information, emergency preparedness and education. Pathways is a community mental health center and provides mental health, psychiatry and addiction recovery treatment services to children, adolescents and adults. In addition, Pathways began providing primary care services one day a week in Clinton this past April under the Compass Health Wellness, and anticipates adding dental services over the next year.
“Locating our organizations in the same building allows us to work together to improve the overall health of the community,” said Bonnie Glass, Henry County Health Center Administrator.
“The program and services of both organizations complement each other and will integrate well for the individuals and families we serve,” said Donni Kuck, Pathways, V.P of Southwest Region.
The renovation is scheduled to begin mid-October and is estimated to be an eight-month project.
