MARBLE FALLS — From recovering after shoulder surgery to skin cancer screenings, Baylor Scott & White officials are inviting the public to several community outings for preventative care advice and free medical screenings and to get to know local health care workers.
“Yes, we do have a somewhat aging population, but we’re also expanding the availability of service in the community, so there’s a lot of things we’re offering that we did not offer a year ago,” said Dr. Peter Davenport of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Marble Falls.
Davenport also oversees the facility’s Family Medicine Department.
The entity, which just reached five years in business at the intersection of U.S. 281 on Texas 71, recently unveiled a series of events to reintroduce itself and to find out more about friends and neighbors.
“At these events, (residents) can find out that a lot of these services are offered locally, and they don’t have to drive into the big city for them anymore,” Davenport said. “It’s reaching out to the community and being involved directly so everyone can get together and work together to promote health.”
