Well Adult Clinics are held monthly in each of the sixteen towns served, and are an opportunity for adult residents to have a basic health screening and talk with their town nurse!
If you are concerned about a resident who is elderly, frail, or otherwise at-risk, you can refer them to one of the monthly Well Adult Clinics.
It's important to note that residents of Nashoba towns can attend any of the clinics - it does not have to be the one in your town!
Please see below for this month's clinic schedule (January 2023), or look at the image below.
The most up-to-date version of this schedule will be on the Nashoba website at https://www.nashoba.org/calendar.
Also attached is the Public Health Nursing one-pager to this email that details when you might contact your Town Nurse.
When in doubt, just call!
