Dr. Jacqueline Huynh of the Nevada Health Center promotes wellness in time for back-to-school. From immunizations to diet, rest and recreation, it’s important to create a healthy balance for your student whether headed to preschool or college and all grades in between. Parents can schedule appointments by calling 775-738-5850 or walk-ins are welcome at 762 14th Street in Elko. Don’t forget sports physicals! The Nevada Health Center accepts new and returning patients, all insurance or no insurance, and offers care from pediatrics to geriatrics. The Elko Family Medicine and Dental Clinic can provide same day care.
Lynette Vega is co-founded of the local advocacy group, “Zero Suicides Elko County.” She and Wendy Charlebois appeared on Wellness Wednesday to talk about ending the stigma of getting help for mental illness and supporting friends, family and colleagues who are supporting loved ones as well. The group is collaborating with several agencies, including NNRH, to offer free training for how to best respond to anyone contemplating suicide. Wellness Wednesday is sponsored by Vitality Integrated Program Services, a complete behavioral community health clinic.
