FFMC Launches Senior Days
FFMC serves over 300 hardworking 60+ patients a year. These patients have higher health risks, larger preventative medical care costs, and physical barriers that prevent access to comprehensive healthcare. Thanks to the one-time Serving Tennessee’s Seniors grant administered by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, FFMC is one of 121 organizations statewide to expand their senior services.
FFMC was awarded $82,000 to launch Senior Days – a new program to open doors, decrease costs, and provide care in one convenient day. During our six Senior Days, we will provide 150 patients with screenings and procedures, free shingles vaccines, medication reconciliation, nutrition and wellness counseling, skin cancer screening, and mental health screening. In addition, our generous partners will provide mammograms and colonoscopies to these individuals.
We want to thank our partners, Lipscomb University’s College of Pharmacy, St. Thomas’ Mobile Mammogram unit, Premier Radiology, Outpatient Diagnostic Center, and Heritage Medical Associates for working with us to provide these services.
