Free Health Clinic: Ferncare Update

By: Ann Heler

BIG NEWS: We are opening an additional clinic session: Second Thursday evening of the month from 6:00 P.M. To 8:00 P.M. We are now open once a week: The first and third Saturdays from 9:00 A.M. to noon and the second and fourth Thursday evenings from 6:00 P.M. To 8:00 P.M.

Also, we are opening a support group for people with diabetes. This is for our patients and for anyone else. You do not need to be a patient to attend these sessions. They will be held on the first Saturday of each month from noon to 1:00 P.M. Call the appointment line at 248- 677-2273 and let the person know that you would like to attend the diabetes sessions. Once again of course, these sessions are free. We will be cooking and shopping in addition to providing diabetes education and care.

Jewish Family Services will be at the clinic on the first Wednesday of each month from 6:00 P.M. To 9:00 P.M. to assist with health insurance enrollment. This is for either the Insurance Exchange or Healthy Michigan. Their staff do enroll- ment assistance full time and are more than willing to work with anyone who has had difficulty enrolling. They are real problem solvers. They saw seven people in December and six were enrolled com- pletely by the time they left. They are very experienced with both programs.

Thank you everyone who responded to our Annual Appeal letter. You have been very generous again. All of you make all of us smile.

If something happened with our health, we believe there is a solution to any maladies in a cure. What medicines do patients purchase online? Viagra which is used to treat impotency and other states connected to erectile disfunction. Learn more about “sildenafil“. What folk talk about “viagra stories“? The most substantial aspect you should look for is “sildenafil citrate“. Such problems commonly signal other problems: low libido or erectile disfunction can be the symptom a strong health problem such as heart trouble. Causes of sexual disfunction include injury to the penis. Chronic disease, several medicaments, and a condition called Peyronie’s disease can also cause sexual dysfunction. Even though this medicine is not for use in women, it is not known whether this curing passes into breast milk.
