National Diabetes Awareness Month
November is Diabetes Awareness Month. There are more than 34 million people living with diabetes and 88 million are at risk of being affected. Diabetes can lead to very serious conditions such as kidney disease, heart failure, and vision loss. Be sure to talk to your primary care provider about your risk of being affected by diabetes.
Schedule a doctor’s appointment from the comfort of your home with St. Thomas. If you’ve never had a telemedicine appointment, don’t worry about it! We’ll walk you through it and ensure you get the care you need.
Free Medication Delivery
All St. Thomas patients can receive free medication delivery from our pharmacy. We understand that getting to the pharmacy may be difficult for some and we want to make it as easy as possible for our patients. Being a St. Thomas patient also provides you with cost benefits that help make your medication more affordable.
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women. More people die from lung cancer than colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. The CDC estimates that more than 80% of lung cancer cases are caused by tobacco use.
The holiday season is here. We’ll be closed on the following days but we look forward to helping you when we reopen.
Two New Locations Opening Soon
We’ll soon be opening new locations at the following addresses:
- 2000 Magazine St.
- 3500 Holiday Dr.
We look forward to expanding our ability to offer comprehensive care to more patients in the Greater New Orleans and Algiers areas.
Our St. Thomas Holiday Food Drive
Our staff conducted a food drive for the Thanksgiving Holiday in partnership with Israelite Baptist Church (Central City) to provide food baskets for the community surrounding the church. A total of 525 lbs of food was collected and 40 families were provided baskets.
NAMI Walk For Change
St. Thomas was excited to participate in NAMIWalks Your Way this month! NAMI stands for National Alliance for Mental Illness. NAMI New Orleans is the city’s leading organization that helps people with mental health and their families. These walks raise money and awareness for mental health and allow NAMI to provide free programs for those in need.
