The Taney County Health Department (TCHD) Branson location will be closed Friday, December 2 through Friday, December 16 for remodeling. The Forsyth office will remain open during this time and will continue seeing clients and booking appointments. In order to serve the public, TCHD will continue offering routine services with as little interruption as possible. Services primarily affected will be those offered at the Branson office and will include Clinical services, such as immunizations and labs, and the Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) program.

During this time frame all Clinical services will take place at the Forsyth location. WIC services will also remain available at the Forsyth location. In addition, WIC will be available at the Jordan Valley Hollister location Monday through Wednesday the week of December 5 through 9, and Monday through Thursday the week of December 12 through 16. Animal Care and Control, Environmental Health, Community Outreach and Administrative Divisions will be unaffected by the office closure.

“While office closures can be inconvenient to staff and clients, TCHD will be better able to serve our clients once the remodel is complete,” states Robert Niezgoda, TCHD Director. “Clients can expect to see improved privacy and increased efficiency within the Branson reception area.”

Clinical and WIC appointments can be made during the December 2 through 16 time frame by calling the Forsyth location at (417) 546-4725 or 1-888-707-4725. Vital records, including birth and death certificates will temporarily be issued in the Environmental Health Services Building while construction takes place.

TOGETHER. SHAPING THE FUTURE. ONE JOB AT A TIME.

What is a champion and what role does a champion play?

A champion is a volunteer mentor who is willing to enter into a relationship with one of the JfL students in which the champion helps the student reach his/her God-given potential. The champion will encourage the student during the class and maintain that support once the student is employed.  Ideally, the champion and the student will develop a lifelong relationship with one another so that each will be blessed by experiencing life’s journey together.

Shape Shifters Free Health Workshops – June 28-29, 2012

Shelly Hampton, owner of Shape Shifters Pilates in Springfield and Branson, is celebrating her birthday with free workshops in both Branson and Springfield.
As she begins her 58th year, Shelley wanted to share successful aging and health secrets with her friends and clients. Attendees to these free events will hear presentations on superfood blends that help with cancer prevention, free radical damage prevention and sleep issues – critical components to graceful aging.

The presentation by Terra Biotech’s Warren Nugent of Dallas, Texas will be based on research by Dr. Ajay Goel, one of 12 physicians on the World Health Cancer Prevention Board, Dr. Kozlowski, a leading expert on memory, brain health, and dementia, and Dr. Russell Reiter, a melatonin researcher focused on its anti-cancer effects. The program will provide the latest research on superfoods’ impact on blood brain barrier health, anti-inflammatory properties, and sleep.

As reported by KY3 on June 24th, research by the American Thoracic Society reports a link between lack of sleep and cancer risk, in that there is a 60% risk increase for breast cancer with less that 6 hours sleep per night.

Attendees will get samples of food compounds formulated by leading researchers on melatonin, circumin, and 30 blended synergistic compounds that have been shown to kill cancer cells in Baylor University’s test labs, where the largest bank of breast cancer cells in the world exists.

The Branson workshop will be held at 6 PM on Thursday, June 28th at the Shape Shifters Pilates studio located at 2700 Green Mountain Drive. The Springfield event will take place at Noon on Friday, June 29th at the Shape Shifters Pilates studio located at 601 N. National #111. Due to space limitations, reservations are requested and can be made by calling 417-890-6749.
