A new service is now offered by the Red River Health Department. Nursing Supervisor Yashica Turner told The Journal they are offering twice-monthly sessions on high blood pressure.
If you have hypertension and wish some helpful advice, get it from the Health Department in Coushatta. A health coach and dietitian will be available to help you learn how to control your blood pressure. This is a free service offered in conjunction with the HEART Program from the MLK Health Center, funded by BHP.
Blood Pressure Management is offered each first and third Tuesday of the month at the Health Department on Red Oak Road. The time is 9:00 am until 12 Noon. Call Yashica Turner at 318-932-4087 to make an appointment. Walk-ins are also welcome.
