A Beacon of Hope
Outreach is the life blood of HopeHealth and through outreach, our partnerships and volunteers are making a difference in the lives of our Pee Dee community.
Take Diane Davis, HopeHealth’s Community Outreach Coordinator. Davis makes coordinating outreach more than just her title. She also volunteers each month at Lighthouse Ministries where she helps connect those in need with about 60 different services, including health care. Already, 12 of those seeking help have found a health care home at HopeHealth.
In 2015, Davis conducted more than 30 health fairs, provided blood sugar screenings and blood pressure checks, and helped coordinate numerous HIV tests.
All are part of the outreach mission – but at the core is educating communities on the importance of a primary health care home.
“I think it is something everyone needs to get on board with; to have your own medical home, a medical provider, have your history in one place.”

“I think it is something everyone needs to get on board with; to have your own medical home, a medical provider, have your history in one place,” said Davis.
HopeHealth outreach efforts have started many in our communities on a path of proactive health care and 2,516 individuals in communities spanning the Pee Dee have heard the HopeHealth message in 2015; 765 took steps to address their health with HopeHealth blood pressure and/or blood sugar screenings.
