RiskBusters is for you . . . especially if you'd like to make changes in your life to be healthier. The program was originally designed to address chronic diseases in Bandera County--diabetes, heart disease, and other health problems that are caused by lifestyle. But then, the clinic staff discovered that RiskBusters works for everyone. Every patient at the Arthur Nagel Community Clinic is welcome to participate. Whatever health goals you have for yourself, RiskBusters can help.
The program starts with a survey--the RiskBusters Assessment Survey asks you questions about your lifestyle. Some questions ask what you do (like smoking) and others ask what you don't do (like exercising or eating a healthy diet). Come discover how your lifestyle choices affect your health.
As part of RiskBusters, some of your options may surprise you. As any part of RiskBusters, clinic patients can come to the clinic to have weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, and health factors checked. Make an appointment or stop by the clinic during open hours (Tuesday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and join the movement for a healthier Bandera County!
Eat with Arthur: If you are a patient . . . or someone who cooks for a patient . . . the clinic's teaching kitchen has hands-on programs to help you buy, prepare, and cook a healthy meal. You get to cook and taste things that may be new to you. And you can spend time in the kitchen with others who are interested in learning more about healthy cooking.
Arthur on the Move: If you are a patient . . . or know a person you'd like to exercise with . . . this program is for you. We keep information on this program updated on the Events page.
Arthur in the Community: If you'd like to hear more about health in Bandera County, please Ask Arthur to come speak to you and a group of people. If you don't have a place to meet, ask if you can use the clinic's Education Room for your meeting.
