Penobscot Nation Health Department
I wanted to let you know that we are bringing back Dr. Becker from January 3 – April 3 to provide services here at the Health Department. We are currently experiencing a high volume of acute cases. This is leading to quite a few patients being referred out for walk-in/urgent care, and our provider schedules are booked out well into January. Because peak flu season is approaching as well, we made the decision to bring on an additional provider to help with the workload. We received really positive feedback from both patients and staff regarding his previous work here, and he is excited to return. I am building his schedule for January today, and we should be able to start pre-booking him next week.
As always, please reach out with any questions/comments/concerns.
Candy Henderly Director Penobscot Nation Health Department
Penobscot Nation Youth Program
The Penobscot Nation Youth Program is looking for donations to help increase and enhance activities and programs for the youth. The youth are the foundation of our future and needs our help and support to create positive opportunities that will only strengthen our community. There are many ways to help: monetary donations, donations of supplies, and a donation of time with the youth. You can invest in many things in life and you may win some and lose some, but when you invest in the youth you win every time. The youth needs your help more than ever and every little bit helps.
Please contact John Neptune at 207-659-3490 or Brittney Fields at 207-217-1906 to let us know how you would like to help. A payroll deduction form has been attached, if that is a way you would like to support the youth of this community.
