Joseph Johnson Brothers

In February of 2018 a lump formed on my neck. At first I thought it was a swollen gland, but when it grew, I knew I had to visit the Marathon Health & Wellness Center.

Jonathan St. Johns County School District

I have had asthma since I was a child, but I hadn’t used an inhaler for years. When a cold virus attacked my lungs, I had difficulty breathing, was having trouble sleeping, and didn’t have the energy I normally did to perform simple tasks. I was miserable.

Erika Lane County

I have been visiting the Live Well Center to work on mental health and processing of personal traumas. I had become increasingly depressed and wasn’t living my best life.

Evelyn Mr. Cooper

In July 2018, I had bloodwork performed at the Cypress Waters Health Center. Although I thought I felt fine at the time, Christina Keil, FNP, told me my A1c was elevated and I was at risk of developing diabetes. This terrified me, as I wanted to be healthy for my husband and children.

David City of St. Cloud

I spent years visiting my family physician and had always been told my heart was healthy overall. He said that I had a mild heart murmur, but I still felt like there was a more serious issue.

Debra Brevard Public Schools

I have always been very nervous about going to the doctor. Growing up, I had my blood drawn frequently, which contributed to my irrational fear of needles and overall dread of going to the doctor’s office.

Chelsea City of Chattanooga

As a working mother of two children under age two, I was exhausted, overwhelmed, and lacked confidence. I wasn’t nourishing my body with healthy foods and knew my weight gain and exhaustion stemmed from this.

Cathy Chesapeake Public Schools

Following routine bloodwork and a biometric screening, I realized I needed to make a change. My elevated cholesterol and weight paired with my family history made me concerned about future health problems.

Tyrone Chatham County

I smoked for 15 years. Smoking caused me to have shortness of breath, fatigue, bad breath, and financial stress. Thankfully, after many failed attempts, I was able to quit with the help of Alisa Allicock, FNP, at Chatham County Employee Health Center.

Sean Wayne Farms

When We Care Wellness Center opened at our plant, I completed a Comprehensive Health Review (CHR) to discuss my overall health. The main reason I went was because it was free and I had never really been to the doctor for anything.
