Preventive Health Screening and Annual Visits
Women should obtain gynecological services annually. The goal of the yearly visit is to provide counseling about disease prevention and vaccinations, discuss healthy lifestyle habits, and screen for certain illnesses based on age and family history. Be proactive about your health by staying on top of necessary screenings and health care visits.
All Women’s Health Services are provided at each of our health center locations by Certified Nurse-Midwife Jodi Schwartz Belson.
Outer Cape Health Services is partnering with a non-profit organization called Upstream USA that is providing training on contraceptive counseling and care. Outer Cape Health Services would like to learn about our patients’ experiences with contraceptive counseling and care. You may be invited by text message or email to take a survey on this topic. Upstream USA is conducting this virtual survey using the Azara app. It is anonymous and voluntary. The survey is available in many languages and takes 5-10 minutes to complete. Patients who complete the survey will receive a $10 e-gift card. This survey will be used to help improve health care services. For questions, speak to the OCHS site staff where you receive care.
