The Crow Wing County health department will be holding early childhood screening and child and teen checkup clinics in Brainerd. Checkups are by appointment only. Early childhood screening will be conducted from 8:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 6, 12 and the 26; and from 12 to 5:45 p.m. Sept. 27. Child and teen checkups will be from 8:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Sept. 13 and 28.
The child and teen checkup is a series of checkups for apparently well children and young adults in the county from six months to 20 years of age. The purpose of the checkup is to find health problems or deviations of growth and development and have them corrected before they become serious.
A full checkup includes hearing and vision testing, height and weight check, simple laboratory tests, a physical exam, a growth and development assessment, a nutrition review and immunizations. If a screening reveals a health problem requiring a further diagnosis or treatment, parents are notified and assistance is offered for scheduling appointments and transportation if needed.
The checkup fee is based on the family's income. No one will be turned away because of lack of finances. To make an appointment or for further information, parents may call Amy Barstad with the clinic at 218-824-1097 or toll free at 1-877-724-1080.
The health department also administers the special supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children. The program provides nutrition education, referrals to medical providers and vouchers for specific food for pregnant, post-partum and breast feeding women, infants and children up to five. Clinics will be the first Tuesday on every month in Pequot Lakes and the first Thursday and Friday of the month in Crosby and several days in Brainerd.
The income threshold is fairly high. A family of four with an income of $45,900 may be eligible for the program. To inquire or to make an appointment call WIC at 218-824-1073.
