April is STD Awareness Month

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), sexually-transmitted disease rates are at a record high in the United States. Cases of gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia have all increased significantly in the past few years. Left undetected and untreated, these infections can have serious health implications, including long-term pain, increased risk of HIV/AIDS, and infertility. We can all help reduce sexually-transmitted diseases in three easy steps:

  • TALK. Talk about STDs with your partners and health care provider.
  • TEST. Get yourself tested. It’s the only way to know if you have a STD.
  • TREAT. If you are told you have a STD, get treated right away.

Unity Care NW is a Reach Out and Read Participant

Unity Care NW is a proud participant in the Reach Out and Read Program. Reach Out and Read is a national program that supports early literacy. At each well-child visit for children from 6 months to 5 years old, our providers give young children new books and encourage families to read together. Creating a love for books and reading at an early age can help children be ready for school. Learn more about the Reach Out and Read program here.

Thanks to support from the Bellingham Public Library, the Whatcom County Library System, and Village Books, we also invite all children to pick up a free book when they are visiting our health center. You’ll find bookshelves in our waiting rooms where you can select a book to take home. Happy reading!
