Community Health Workers Provide Wellness Screenings to Local Businesses

When was the last time you received a wellness screening? Tri-County Health Network offers free wellness screenings for residents and employees in San Miguel, Ouray, Montrose, and Delta counties. Our Community Health Workers (CHWs) will give you a small prick in your finger and ask a few questions regarding your health history and diet. Part of the screening determines your risk of diabetes and heart disease in the next 10 years.

After you are screened, we’ll provide you with a printout of your screening results including both good and bad cholesterol (HDL and LDL), triglycerides, blood glucose, BMI, and blood pressure. The CHWs will then work with you to create an individualized action plan for a healthier lifestyle and set achievable goals to improve physical and mental health.

Knowing that economic and social factors can impact your health, we have incorporated a social determinants of health screening to connect clients to local resources—most of which are also free! —that may help clients meet their health-related goals. In addition, we can screen for and refer you to behavioral health support and wellness resources.

We recommend you get re-screened every six months to check for changes in biomarkers and assess health goals. Our CHWs can also provide health coaching to you in between your screenings to keep you motivated and help you continue to make progress on your goals.

Do you own your own business? If so, please contact TCHNetwork to set up an employee wellness screening day to strive towards optimal health in the workplace! We can come to your business at no-cost and work individually with your employees.
