Safe Kids Car Seat Education

Since 2007, at least 180 children in Georgia who were involved in crashes were saved from serious injury or death by car seats, booster seats and safety education. We offer car seat education by appointment for parents and caregivers. Please call 770.358.1483 ext. 4 for more information.

Low Birthweight Initiative

Low birthweight infants (born weighing less than 5.5 pounds) face higher rates of infant mortality, developmental challenges and long-term disabilities. We are working to reduce the number of low birthweight babies born to Lamar County residents by partnering with social and health care agencies to provide smoking cessation classes, nutrition and healthy lifestyle classes, assistance with maternal stress management, and referral to affordable health and dental care.

Alzheimer’s Screenings

The Lamar County Health Department recently was selected as one of three health departments in Georgia to serve as telehealth appointment locations through Georgia Memory Net, a non-profit, statewide program developed to address the growing need for Georgians to have earlier access to diagnostic services closer to home.

After receiving a primary care doctor’s referral, an individual can now come with a loved one to a telehealth appointment at the Lamar County Health Department, where a private, designated area is available for them to visit with a specialist through an online video call.

The health department’s clinical staff can help patients log in to their appointment and is available to support them throughout the visit. If the specialist decides any lab work is needed, it can be performed during the same visit at the health department.

For more information, visit district4health.org/memory. For additional information on Georgia Memory Net, including how to get a referral, visit gamemorynet.org.
