DAY OF CARING (DoC) is a version of our “backyard medical mission” – providing a high quality, comprehensive, and personalized Christian health care. On this day, St. Joseph Primary Care partners with one of the local churches and transforms the church into a free health clinic to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the people in the community. Our DoC model receives equipped volunteers from local churches, healthcare providers, medical/college students, and other medical ministries and businesses to host this one-day health fair in attempt to meet human needs in Christ’s name. Rather than traveling to another location, volunteers engage the community in which they live with this “backyard medical mission”. Day of Caring offers a variety of medical and dental services, such as: medical consultations, annual flu shots, Cholesterol and diabetes screenings, cardiovascular disease prevention and advice, as well as dental services to check for cavities, gum disease, oral lesions, etc. For people who need a follow-up, St. Joseph will be on site to schedule appointments for people to receive quality care.
