HEALTH CARE BEYOND WALLS
CHIPS' Health Care Beyond Walls program is a leader in the metro St. Louis area in community health outreach screenings and education. CHIPS community health nurses and outreach workers use a standard screening protocol and perform at least 5 different screenings (blood pressure, blood sugar, height, weight, BMI) and assess participants’ access to and use of health care services. CHIPS' community health nurses refer participants to services and follow up on any participant whose screening tests are out of normal range. CHIPS' community health nurses and professional volunteers provide education and counseling and materials for supporting the education clients receive.
