June 07, 2019
Palatka, Fla. - DOH-Putnam co-hosted the 1st Self-Care Day for our homeless citizens. During the Self-Care Day, they were able to shower, get haircuts, laundry service, food and education about other local services and resources.
The DOH-Putnam team gave Hepatitis A and Flu Vaccines; provided testing and counseling for HIV, TB and Diabetes. The event was a great opportunity to assist some fantastic folks who needed a hand up.
