OSU Health Care Center offers tours, health screenings for west Tulsa families
The Oklahoma State University Health Care Center will provide health information and free screenings to the families of Eugene Field Elementary and residents of the surrounding community on Friday, April 12.
"We want our closest neighbors to gain a better understanding of what the OSU Physician clinics offer," said Samantha Werdel, clinical administrator of family medicine and women's health at OSU Health Care Center. "Our goal is to be their partner in health care and provide services like preventive care, obstetrics and acute and chronic illness care for the all members of their families."
After a brief overview of the clinic, visitors will have the opportunity to receive a free basic health screening and one-on-one counseling. Screenings include blood pressure checks, eye exams and body mass index measurements. The first session begins at 1:30 p.m. followed by a second session at 3:30 p.m.
Eugene Field Elementary is OSU Center for Health Sciences' Partner in Education School and supports the elementary school through various activities.
OSU Health Care Center, located at 2345 Southwest Boulevard in Tulsa, focuses on the health and well-being of the entire family and provides services in general health care, osteopathic manipulative therapy, psychiatry and behavioral medicine and diabetic foot care. The women's health center is equipped with a mammography unit.
