Parish Nurse Notes . . .

A flu vaccine clinic will be held in Brashaber Fellowship Hall on Sunday, November 5th from 10:00-11:00 a.m. It is being provided by the Community Health Nurses at IU Health Bloomington. The cost will be covered by most insurances, so please make sure you have your health insurance card with you. The cost will be approx $25.00 if not covered by insurance. Please protect yourself, and others by getting the vaccine!

November is also prostate cancer awareness month! You will probably hear-and see-No Shave November to raise awareness about prostate cancer and all forms of cancer in men. About 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. It is the third leading cause of death in American men, behind lung and colorectal cancer. About 1 man in 39 will die from prostate cancer.  It is a serious disease, but most men diagnosed with prostate cancer do not die from it. Please take the time to get your yearly physical and get checked!

In His Healing Love,
