Community Education

In keeping with our mission — to improve the health of the people and communities we serve — our community programs are designed to promote healthy lifestyles and teach you the basic steps of disease prevention and safety. They are built around what you tell us you need most, including classes on disease prevention and wellness, and health screenings for early detection of common health conditions. Our goal is to help you improve your health and live a healthier life. 

Our team of physicians, nurses and dietitians are dedicated to helping you take the first steps to better health. Our programs are offered on the Missouri Baptist Medical Center campus and at various off-site locations in your neighborhood.
