When searching for a way to give back to the community, Northwest AHEC did not have to look far for something where we could impact our local community. Senior Services of Forsyth County is located just across the street from our office location, at McCreary Tower, and they have a critical need for volunteers for the Meals-on-Wheels program.
The Salvation Army of Greater Winston-Salem will be holding their Annual Fundraiser on Thursday, May 13th at 12:00PM-1:00PM. Registration is free.
We hear the term health coach more and more these days so I wanted to explore the role of the health coach in this blog post. A health coach is a coach for people who want to or who are contemplating making behavioral changes that result in a healthier lifestyle. A health coach is a type of healthcare extender trained to help others set goals and be accountable for themselves as they begin a journey to improve their overall health and quality of life.
One of my favorite things to do it sit, listen, and talk with interesting people. For almost two years now I have had the pleasure of sitting down with some beautiful humans and recording these conversations for our Healthcare Insights in Northwest North Carolina podcast https://soundcloud.com/nwahecwebmaster
I recently connected with Jeremy Moseley, the Director of Community Engagement of FaithHealth, to discuss the mission and their ministries. Their mission is to build, align and animate religious and community assets to improve access to health care and the health of the community - a mission that aligns well with Northwest AHEC's.
