“Project Healthy Living” event assisted by Dorsey Schools Roseville campus
“Project Healthy Living” is an initiative administered by the United Health Organization. UHO is celebrating 46 years of service for residents and visitors of southeast Michigan. “Project Healthy Living” is a series of comprehensive health screenings and body wellness checks, with the help of non-profit health and human service agencies that share vital health education, disease prevention and detection information.
“Project Healthy Living” started on Friday March 21st at the Macomb Mall in Roseville, MI for the annual community wellness event. Dorsey Schools’ students from the Medical Assistant, Medical Administration and Billing and Patient Care Technician programs helped kick off the opening weekend, where they assisted in offering high quality services that included screening for diseases – such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, cancer and heart disease. These services were offered at the little or no cost.
This year, “Project Healthy Living” is showcasing two new pieces of technology.
The first is a three-dimensional Body Analyzer that can check major body organs for diseases. The Body Analyzer can then send back a report, giving information on the heart, digestive system, and nervous system, among other data.
The second test being showcased is the Tesla Pain Management system, which has been proven to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation (as well as improve blood flow).
Students who volunteered at the event were also able to help people sign up for the Affordable Care Act.
Dorsey Schools would like to commend these students for the great work they are doing to help their local community. Many people don’t have access to basic health care or simply cannot afford to have the basic tests that need to be performed for maintaining their health. Community events such as “Project Healthy Living” are a great way to help people get access to these tests, not to mention the great patient care practice the students are receiving.
If helping people maintain their health and live better lives is something that might interest you, consider a career as a medical assistant or patient care technician. The programs at Dorsey Schools can help you prepare for a successful and rewarding job in the healthcare industry.
