Public Health Week Celebration
The first week of April we celebrate national Public Health Week. As your local health department, this is a time for us to showcase our services to the public and offer discounted and even free clinical services.
Back to School Fair
As a member of Pike Community Care Partnership (PCCP) we are active participants in the annual Back to School Fair. This event offers many services and items for children heading back to school. From free backpacks to face painting this event is packed full of informational and edible goodies for all to enjoy. This event provides school supplies, hair cuts, backpacks, vision and dental screenings, and community resources to those children who are in need is made possible.
Annually in August, PCHD helps orchestrate this event that is also funded by community donations.
Drive thru flu clinic
Fall is the time of year when it is recommended for residents of the community to receive their flu shot. We are aware it can be difficult for some to make appointments around their busy working and life schedules to receive their immunization; this is why we make it as easy as driving thru! We set up our mobile clinic in the parking lot next to Bowling Green Walmart, all you need to do is pull up to one of our trained nurses, put your car in park, and toss your arm out your window. We accept most insurances with ease. We will host this clinic at least once a year, sometimes more if the public requests.

School Shot Clinics
With each new school year there are required vaccinations for children. We travel to different area locations to help ease the travel burden on parents who need to get their children vaccinated before the school year begins, and throughout the rest of the year.
Each year in October we host a 5K to help get our community active. Our first few years the theme was a Zombie Run, recently we have highlighted our 5K with the GLOW theme, and this year we introduce… the TURKEY TROT!

Each year during the holiday season we erect our Giving Tree. This tree is intended for community members to come together and donate to the local food pantry. This tree is on display in our lobby and is usually full of generous non-perishable donations from our employees and the public.
