King’s Daughters Portsmouth hosts open house, screenings on April 8

ASHLAND, Ky. – King’s Daughters Family Care Center Portsmouth is hosting an open house with free screenings from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, April 8, and the public is invited.

Screenings for diabetes and hypertension will be provided. No appointment is needed. The Family Care Center is located on the third floor of King’s Daughters Medical Center Ohio, 2001 Scioto Trail, Portsmouth.

Health is the foundation that makes dreams possible. Staying healthy takes effort: eating well, getting physical activity and getting regular checkups and preventive health services. “We’re excited to invite the community to visit our centers,” said Lisa Ashley, primary care team leader.

Primary care is the cornerstone of healthy people, families and communities. Research shows that people who have a primary care provider are, overall, healthier and live longer lives. “We hope people who don’t have a primary care provider will take advantage of this opportunity to meet our team and establish with a primary care provider,” Ashley said.

King’s Daughters Family Care Center Portsmouth providers include family physicians Aaron Adams, D.O., L. Cantey Hassell, M.D., Richard Kenned, M.D., Debra Lewis, D.O., Rita Roberts, D.O., and nurse practitioner Christopher Keeton. Center hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
