The WIC program also provides participants with individually tailored healthy food vouchers that can be used at thousands of stores through Georgia’s eWIC program, the state’s electronic food system for issuing food benefits.

SENIOR CORPS
Troup County offers two initiatives of the national AmeriCorps program, which connects volunteers to meaningful community service with senior citizens. The Foster Grandparent program connects senior volunteers to mentor, support and help children and young people with exceptional needs. The Senior Companion Program brings together volunteers age 55 and over with adults in their community who have difficulty with the simple tasks of day-to-day living. Companions help out on a personal level by assisting with shopping and light chores, interacting with doctors, or just making a friendly visit. To become a part of Troup County’s AmeriCorps program, fill out this volunteer application and submit it to lashonda.smith@dph.ga.gov.

QUICK LINKS

REQUEST FOR MEDICAL RECORDS

Some individuals prefer to keep a personal copy of their medical records in case of rare instances when medical offices expunge inactive patient records, or if records are otherwise lost or destroyed. All medical records are protected under the laws of the state of Georgia and the HIPAA Privacy Rule. You have a right to inspect, review and receive a copy of your medical records and billing records held by health plans and providers. Click here to learn more about your rights regarding your medical records under HIPAA.

If you would like a copy of your health department medical records, please print and complete the Authorization for Use or Disclosure of Health Information form. (If you will be requesting your records in person, the health department also can provide you the form to complete.) Note: It may take up to three days to process your request.

The fee for a complete medical record is $10.00, and the fee for an individual page or form (such as an immunizations record) is $7. You can request your medical records in one of the following ways:

In Person:
Visit your county’s health department to submit your completed authorization form (or fill it out when you arrive).   We accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa, money order and cash.

By Mail:
Complete and send the authorization form, a copy of photo ID, and money order made payable to your county’s health department.

By Fax:
Print and complete the authorization form and fax it to your county’s health department. Records cannot be returned to a personal fax and will be sent to the health department.

Afternoon everyone, here is the latest outlook for severe weather in Georgia on Friday. Damaging winds are the main threat, but a couple of tornados could occur. Storms are most likely between 10 AM and 8 PM.

Severe storms, including tornadoes, are expected late tonight into tomorrow/Friday. Tornadoes are especially dangerous at night. Have a severe weather safety plan in place if a warning is issued. Tune in to NOAA weather radio or broadcast media for possible warnings.

Childhood vaccinations save an estimated 4 million lives worldwide every year. Yet 1 in 5 children are missing lifesaving immunizations that protect them and their communities from dangerous diseases.

It’s Cervical Health Awareness Month!

A Pap test is one of the most important ways to screen for cell changes. These tests can detect cell changes early – so the cervix can be treated before the cells turn into cancer.

Make an appointment at http://district4health.org/make-an-appointment/.

If you have not gotten a flu shot yet, do not wait any longer. Flu activity is widespread throughout Georgia, and the current flu report lists flu activity at the highest level.

Read Full Release: http://district4health.org/georgia-flu-activity/

A potent storm system will move into GA Tonight and Tue. Periods of heavy rain with 1 to 3 inches possible with isolated higher amounts. There is also a chance of thunderstorms, with some becoming strong to severe. Strong gusty winds are also expected.
