On Wednesday, March 12th, the Southeastern Med Auxiliary will be hosting a community health screening event to help raise funds to provide equipment to enhance patient comfort and improve the facilities available at Southeastern Med.
Southeastern Med Auxiliary is dedicated to enhancing patient care through community fundraisers. This year the Auxiliary members chose to further enhance their community efforts by providing a fundraiser that will also directly benefit those underinsured and uninsured of the community, ages 18 and older.
The event begins at 7 a.m. and will conclude at 9 a.m. The event consists of a Health Profile Screening for $50. This screening includes a complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, lipid profile, and hemoglobin A1C. Participants may choose to also have a TSH (thyroid) and/or a PSA (prostate) screening performed for $15 each. The Health Profile screening package requires a 10 to 12 hour fast. Those participating can still take any morning medications as usual with small sips of water only.
Registrations for this health event can be made by calling 740-435-2900. The event will be held at the Community Health Link at 1205 Clark Street, Cambridge, OH.

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio, Sept. 25, 2013 – The 21st Annual Walk to Remember will be held on Sunday, Oct. 6 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Southeastern Med, 1341 Clark St., in Cambridge. The annual walk is held for parents who have experienced the death of a child.
This year’s walk will begin with a short program followed by a one-mile walk and balloon release. Refreshments and fellowship will follow at Southeastern Med.
Walk to Remember began in 1993 through Southeastern Med Childbirth Center’s RTS (Resolve Through Sharing) Bereavement Services. The mission of the bereavement support group is to provide dignified, respectful and compassionate bereavement care for patients and families.

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio, Nov. 29, 2012 – Every year, many people finish up the holiday season with a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight – and for good reason. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, two out of every three Americans are overweight or obese.
To help individuals meet their healthy weight loss and exercise goals, Southeastern Med, in conjunction with the Cambridge YMCA, will offer the Group Lifestyle Balance™ (GLB) program beginning Jan. 8. GLB is a diabetes prevention and education program created to provide a fun and supportive way to learn how to eat healthy and increase physical activity for a lifetime.
“Most weight loss plans are fads that offer short-term solutions to a long-term problem, “said Chelsea Masters, RD, Registered Dietitian at Southeastern Med and a GLB Program Leader. “Many people find these plans impossible to stay on for a lengthy period of time. Group Lifestyle Balance offers a positive change in lifestyle, where permanent weight loss and maintenance is a result of enjoyable exercise and diet. By balancing food intake and exercise, you can achieve your ideal weight.”
CAMBRIDGE, Ohio, Aug. 7, 2012 – Lace up your shoes and head to the start line of the Cambridge Main Street/Classic Ford 5K Run/Walk on Sat., Oct. 6, in conjunction with the Annual Cambridge October Fall Festival.
With the race more than eight weeks away, there is still time to train for the event. Although running can be intimidating, with a little consistency and a lot of determination, even the out-of-shape can train to run a 5k in as little as eight to 10 weeks.
A 5k race is 3.1 miles and is a great place to start for those who want to get in shape and edge into running. The following tips can help get a beginning runner on the right path to the finish line.
Do basic training
Before starting a training program, Kelli Haney, an Exercise Physiologist at Southeastern Med, recommends everyone visit a physician for a physical exam to make sure it is safe to start a running program. After receiving the okay from a physician, plan on an eight- to 10-week training program. Two training guides Haney recommends are Hal Higdon’s 5K Training Guide and the Couch to 5K Program.
“Everyone starts at a different exercise level,” Haney said. “It’s important to start slow and work your way up. My favorite quote is, ‘You want to back your car up slowly out of the garage, not full throttle.”
