Dr. Joseph Woelfel ’70, ’72, ’78 recently received the One Time Only Grant from the San Joaquin County Human Services Agency for the Falls Prevention and Pharmaceutical Clinics. The funding will help purchase screening tools such as a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) -waved diagnostic test system for hemoglobin analysis that will enable additional health screening parameters for patients served in the clinics and at healthcare outreach events.
“Receiving this grant recognizes Pacific’s dedication to servicing the needs of the community and the School as a valued member of the San Joaquin County public health continuum,” said Dr. Woelfel.
The clinics serve a number of patients throughout the year. Annually, the Falls Prevention Clinic serves over 600 patients, the Pharmaceutical Care Clinic serves over 400 patients, and the Asthma Clinic serves approximately 100 patients. Many of these services are also offered through the Medicare Part D outreach events and health fairs.
