Norton Sound's Primary Care Week
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Dr. David Head is the Chief of Staff at Norton Sound. He says the overhaul of primary care is being promoted with a week of free health screenings in Nome, ranging from cholesterol and blood pressure tests to bone density scans for men and women over the age of 50. Dr. Head says that the week of free screenings helps reinforce the idea that healthcare should be a priority, no matter your state of health.
The free health screenings will be available all this week at the Norton Sound Hospital in the Outpatient Clinic lobby. In this Profile, Dr. Head talks about what's changing at Norton Sound, and how the hospital will focus on preventive care in both individuals and families.
