BeCI Conducts Annual Health Fair

BeCI’s Annual Health Fair was held in the Multi-Purpose Building.  Many offenders took advantage of this wonderful event to meet departments within Health Services and to obtain educational material and resources that will be useful to them.  Point of care testing was offered by the nursing staff as well as educational material on information such as hand washing, how to prevent the flu, lasting effects of substance abuse, and diabetes.  Representatives from United Healthcare along with our in-house Medicaid liaison were available to discuss health insurance options for offenders who will soon be released. The dental department was on site passing out products such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss to ensure optimal oral hygiene.  The dietetic technician was also available to answer any nutritional inquiries. Overall, the event was a success with much gratitude and appreciation shown by the offenders.
