Underwood-Memorial incorporates, as part of its mission, a broad array of community outreach and wellness activities, delivering educational material and counseling, offering free or low cost health screenings and hosting patient and family support groups.
We understand the importance and value of emphasizing good health, fitness, safety and the promotion of early detection of illness or disease. Therefore, all of our outreach efforts reflect our strong desire to improve the quality of life for all who live and work in the communities we serve.
Underwood-Memorial continues its role as lead agency in Gloucester County’s Cancer Education and Early Detection Program. This initiative, supported by New Jersey state and federal funds allows us to offer free breast, cervical, prostate and colorectal cancer screenings to those who, due to insurance or income factors, might not otherwise have access to these valuable diagnostic screening services.
Our annual hosting of the Heart Health & Wellness Expo on our campus each February provides our friends and neighbors access to free screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and body mass indexing. Educational exhibits, informational booths and physician lectures round out our outreach effort to help reduce the impact of heart disease and stroke in our community.
