Quest Diagnostics Empowers Mississippi Delta Community with Free Health Screenings at I-HEAL Wellness Day


Quest Diagnostics recently delivered complimentary Blueprint for Wellness® testing to over 100 local community members who participated in a wellness day in the Mississippi Delta region. The ninth annual I-HEAL Community Wellness Day, organized by Quest for Health Equity (Q4HE) grantee Glenn Family Foundation, offered a range of free resources for local families, including health screenings, nutritious food, mental health support, vaccines, cleaning supplies, diapers, and more.
Through Blueprint for Wellness, Quest enabled community members to access a comprehensive health screening that empowers individuals with the information necessary to take greater control of their health. Blueprint for Wellness includes a set of clinical laboratory tests and measurements highlighting personal health strengths and risks. Event attendees received valuable information about the health screenings and had access to on-site testing.
Stacey Ingram, Senior Manager at Q4HE, expressed pride in the Quest for Health Equity team's involvement in providing health and wellness resources to the underserved community at I-HEAL Community Wellness Day. She highlighted the accomplishment of offering no-cost health screenings to over 100 event attendees, an increase from the previous year.
In addition to health screenings, Quest also contributed "Staying Healthy" children’s books, part of a series developed through Q4HE in collaboration with the Sesame Workshop, the global impact nonprofit behind Sesame Street.
“The words ‘thank you’ are inadequate to express the depth of our appreciation for your helping to make the ninth annual I-HEAL Community Wellness Day a success,” said Dr Clyde Glenn, president, Glenn Family Foundation.
“We’re excited that Quest Diagnostics joined us again this year to offer Comprehensive Wellness Panels as part of the Quest for Health Equity initiative. These panels are very critical, and this collaboration helps us activate our mission to improve life outcomes for local families by erasing health inequities, providing them with valuable health insights they may not otherwise have access to.”
