The Village of Mount Prospect Public Well being Nurse has began up weekly Well being Screening Clinics for residents of Mount Prospect. Well being Screening Clinics will take spot each and every Monday from 9 AM till 11 AM in the nurse’s workplace. The nurse’s workplace is positioned at Village Hall on the second floor inside the Human Solutions Division. No appointment is expected.

Well being Screening Clinics will include things like a absolutely free blood stress reading, blood glucose screening, heart price verify, and oxygen saturation level. Residents may possibly also request a $two total cholesterol verify if interested. In addition, the nurse will be delivering $20 Total Lipid Panel blood screenings. Lipid Panel screenings will need an appointment – please get in touch with the Human Solutions Division at 847-870-5680 for a lot more info.

The aim of weekly Well being Screening Clinics is to allow residents to each have an understanding of and monitor critical things that influence their all round well being. The nurse will supply an explanation of the benefits and education as necessary. If necessary, the nurse will also offer you help and tips primarily based on the resident’s clinic findings.

In January, the Village of Mount Prospect Human Solutions Division welcomed its new Public Well being Nurse, Nicole Cooper-Ffrench. Along with Cooper-Ffrench’s hiring, the Village is capable to supply this absolutely free and low-expense clinic to Mount Prospect residents. 

“The Village is thrilled to be bringing this service back to the neighborhood. I am so excited to start advertising the well being and wellbeing of the residents of Mount Prospect as the new Public Well being Nurse,” mentioned Cooper-Ffrench. “It is evident that the Human Solutions Division has constructed a robust and caring connection with the neighborhood and I am grateful to now be a portion of it!” 

Cooper-Ffrench has been an RN for the previous five years and worked as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit nurse prior to her employment at the Village. She is searching forward to expanding her expert capabilities by functioning with a broader variety of patient populations and getting an influence on neighborhood well being desires. Her emphasis will be on education, prevention and early detection of well being circumstances.
