Sylvan Hills UMC clinic offers school physicals to mark first anniversary



The monthly wellness clinic at Sylvan Hills UMC Sherwood celebrated one year of serving its community in May 2016. Each month’s clinic has a special focus in addition to providing regular health screenings such as blood pressure and blood sugar checks, and the May clinic’s focus was on school physicals. Dozens of students from the area received free physical exams thanks to the congregation’s work.

The free clinic is offered the first Thursday of every month, from 4 to 7 p.m., and a light meal is available. The food and the services of the clinic are open to the entire community.

To learn more about the clinic or to connect with its coordinator, Audrey Burks, contact the church office at 501-835-3410.
