Narayan said the screenings are designed to take care to patients, not replace checkups with doctors. Some of the things that they are screening for classify as an underlying health condition that the CDC has said makes COVID-19 that much harder to beat if contracted. Patients will check in for their appointment and screenings will follow. After the appointment, a nurse will try to learn what they can of the patients life and heath, including health history and habits. Patients will receive immediate results with advice based on what their screenings show and how to follow up with a doctor.
“We know that most of our men don’t get their health screenings done so that was one of the conversations that myself and some of the barbers had and we thought that the barbershop would be a great instrument to get that out to the community,” said Marraysha Lindsey, owner of Serenity Salon in Trotwood. “It’s just a great feeling to be able to serve your community in that capacity.” “That would be a great foundation for a location to meet those people and then to introduce to them the health initiative to get them aware or even if they are aware of the facts in regards to health, to get them more involved with regular checkups and direct them to a primary health care provider,” he said.
