April Health Today Features OT and Dry Needling

The April Health Today Program will feature presentations on OT and Dry Needling. The session will be held at 12:20 p.m. on Monday, April 30, in the Large Conference Room at Jefferson Community Health & Life.

April is Occupational Therapy Month. Do you know what OT can do for you? Find out how occupational therapy helps people of all ages participate in the things they want and need to do. Megan Vales, OTR/L, CLT, will teach you some of the many ways OT can help you.

We have added a new service at JCH&L Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Services – Dry Needling. Callie Engler, PT, DPT, will explain what dry needling is, and how it could help you manage pain.


Health Today is a free monthly health education session offered by Jefferson Community Health & Life in a lunch-time session. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunch, or are welcome to purchase lunch in the JCH&L cafeteria, which is located near the Conference Rooms.

JCH&L works with a wide variety of professionals who bring educational programs on health-related topics each month.

Reservations are not required. The program is FREE. The only cost for participants would be lunch, if they choose to purchase it. Participants are also welcome to carry in their lunch. Anyone who would like to be on a mailing list to directly receive notices about the monthly sessions or anyone with questions about the program should contact Likens at (402) 729-6855.
