WAHS Joins Wayne Memorial Hospital for Together for Health

Wayne Memorial Hospital The Together for Health Program is a unique partnership in our community between Wayne Memorial Hospital and the school districts of Forest City Regional, Wallenpaupack Area, Wayne Highlands, and Western Wayne, as well as many community organizations. Each year, more than 40 professionals assist with the Together for Health's interactive program emphasizing knowledge and skills for making healthy life style choices.

Part of the program is a clinical assessment by volunteers from the staff of Wayne Memorial Hospital. All eleventh grade students have their height, weight, and blood pressure checked, and may also elect to have a blood sample analyzed for lipid profile and complete blood count at no cost to the students. Students participate in the blood draw only with parental permission, and the results remain confidential. All students receive a copy of their individual lab results. A second copy is mailed to their parent or guardian.

This program also involves a Personal Wellness Profile, which each student completes. They will later receive an individual summary. Click on this link to see the Personal Wellness questionnaire: Personal Wellness Questionnaire.pdf .

In order to guarantee the health of the younger generation, Wayne Memorial Hospital ensures that, together with local contributors and the four participating school districts, students have the one necessary aspect of staying healthy: education about what can be done, what should be done, and how to live a healthy life. For more information about the program, please visit the Wayne Memorial Hospital Community Programs page.
