Health Education is a free service for all Rural Health patients. Health educators can help you manage your asthma, diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol and they can advise you on weight loss, nutrition, exercise, and how to take your medicine. The health educators offer diabetes prevention and Healthy Habits for Children programs that include these services. They can also link you to help to stop smoking. Plus health educators can help you create advanced directives. These legal documents allow you to tell your loved ones ahead of time what end-of-life care you want – and don’t want – to avoid confusion later. Call Atlantic (757-824-5676), Eastville (757-331-1086), Chincoteague (757-336-3682) or Onley (757-787-7374) and ask to speak to the health educator.
