Public Health Clinic welcomes new addition

The Public Health Clinic is excited to introduce its newest addition to the clinic, the Women’s Health Kiosk.

While partnering with St. Andrew Development, Inc. the Kentucky Commission On Women has installed a Women’s Health kiosk in the Public Health Clinic lobby near the registration/check-out area. The Commission has initiated this program to better serve the needs of the women in Kentucky by supplying them with information and resources vital to living healthy lives while helping the Commission gain better information about this population in hopes to better serve their health care needs. This self-guided kiosk, complete with touch screen capabilities, offers information on a wide variety of topics including heart disease, breast cancer, domestic violence, depression and more.

A special feature of this kiosk includes a telephone receiver and the ability for anyone to call and speak to a live person directly from the kiosk for further information on mental health, cancer and domestic health services, as well as the ability to schedule a PAP/mammogram appointment. This is the eighth kiosk the Kentucky Commission On Women has installed across the Commonwealth.

The Public Health Clinic team is excited about this new, innovative opportunity to help the women in our community live healthier lives, and invites you to stop by and check out the kiosk when you have a chance!

The WPCC needs your voice to help boost survey participation

The Public Health Workplace Climate Committee (WPCC) would like to remind Public Health employees that the last day to complete the Employee Satisfaction and Engagement Survey is Friday, August 23.

Want to be entered in a drawing to win a $20 gift card? If so, we still have a ways to go. Currently, we only have a 65 percent participation return rate on the survey. Ask your co-workers if they’ve filled out the survey. If they haven’t, encourage them to do so. Remind them that the survey is being conducted by a third-party administrator (SHRM), so individual responses are not available to the health department. This process ensures confidentiality and anonymous participation. While taking the survey, you’ll be asked demographic information (such as gender, length of service, etc.), but that information is not tied to individual responses and is not presented to LFCHD with the survey results.

Remember, gift cards in the amount of $20 will be raffled at random if we meet the following completion rates:

  • 75% – One gift card
  • 85% – Three gift cards
  • 95% – Five gift cards
  • 100% – Ten gift cards

An initial email with the survey link was sent via SHRM on Monday, Aug. 12. If you accidentally deleted the email with the link, don’t worry! You will soon receive another email reminder from SHRM or SHRM Research with a link to the survey. Please take about 15 minutes to complete the survey, which you can complete on work time.
