High Plains Clinic Observes 17th Anniversary During National Health Center Week


High Plains Executive Director Jay Brooke Gather’s Walkers for Their Stroll

Two landmarks were witnessed today August 7, at the medical campus on Kendall Drive in Lamar.  Ribbon Cutting ceremonies took place for the new facilities for Southeast Mental Health Services and High Plains Community Health Center observed 17 years of service to Lamar and Prowers County and marked the occasion with a 17 minute community walk at noon, headed by executive director, Jay Brooke.  There was plenty of water for the crowd when they completed their trek along a few of the side roads off Memorial Drive in Lamar.  HPCHC has a series of events planned for National Health Center Week, August 6 through the 11th.

Wednesday, August 8 is the traditional Kid’s Day at the Sand and Sage Fairgrounds and HPCHC will participate, treating the kids to ‘crazy hair’, the 5-2-1-0 obstacle course and kids can enjoy free fruits and veggies.  Members of the clinic will be back at the fair on Thursday, August 9, and will offer free cholesterol screenings during the annual ham, bean and cornbread dinner, beginning at 5:30pm.  $5 sports physicals are also available through the week; call High Plains Community Health Center at 336-0261 for details.
