BLACK HISTORY MONTH HEALTH FAIR: “HONORING NURSE FLOSSIE LEWIS” 10:00 A.M. – 2 P.M. FEB. 11, 2023 FSU PC and the City of Panama City celebrate the legacy of Nurse Flossie Lewis through a Community Health Fair at FSU PC. Nurse Lewis trained at Whittaker Memorial Hospital and completed advance training at the Medical College of Virginia and Tuskegee Institute. She served in the New Deal’s Federal Emergency Relief Administration and participated in Cadet Nursing Corps during World War II. As a public health nurse in Bay County, she led a campaign to eradicate tuberculosis and other communicable diseases that disproportionally impacted the black community. She made it her mission to focus on disease prevention. In the spirit of Nurse Lewis, a panel of local physicians will enlighten attendees on the importance of patient advocacy and address other health concerns that are prevalent in the community. Local community centers will provide attendees with information on how to access available local health services. 


GENTRACON23, APR. 4 – 5, 2023 Child welfare workers and other mental healthcare professionals will obtain tools that will help them effectively provide their clients with healthy coping mechanisms and other methods that can enhance the healing process that is associated with generational trauma.  Attendees will also obtain additional tools and will learn ways to better serve the community’s diverse population through building equity and increasing inclusion in their daily interactions and treatment modalities.
