Please register online today! Carter BloodCare is facing the most prolonged period of a critical blood shortage in its recent history. Without an immediate increase in blood donations from the community, local hospital patients are in jeopardy of not receiving the blood transfusions they require. Carter BloodCare is also providing coronavirus antibody testing for blood donors at no charge.
Health and Wellness Ministry Mission
The Health and Wellness Committee is composed of register nurses, professionals in the health care field, and people committed to the wellness of the person not only physically but also the mind and spirit. This committee finds ways to bridge gaps in care with a strong health promotion and illness prevention emphasis. Also, the committee works towards keeping parishioners of all ages well, to educate them, to advocate for them, and to care for them.
The committee offers help to people of all ages understand their health conditions and medications (service opportunities will be offered for specific health issues). Also, offers preventive advice regarding common health concerns. It is possible for individuals to learn to support and fortify their bodies, modifying emotions and enhancing spiritual practices to prevent or alter a response to disease.
