Congratulations to Altagracia Jimenez, the winner of the Zufall Health Colon Cancer Challenge. The lucky Dover resident was awarded $500 in ShopRite gift cards. Her name, along with all patients who were up-to-date on their colon cancer screenings by the end of 2017, were automatically entered into a free drawing.
“I’m really happy I had my screening and could win this prize”, said Ms Jimenez, who already has generous plans for some of her winnings. “First, I’m going to buy juice boxes for the children at my church and then I’m looking forward to sharing the prize to help my daughter.”
Dover, NJ — Army veteran Frank Mazzie hadn’t seen a dentist in a dozen years, so he jumped at the chance for what he considered a “goodwill mission for my mouth.”
The Nutley resident and more than 200 other veterans from North and Central Jersey flocked to Dover this weekend to be part of the state’s first ever Mission of Mercy — Smiles for Our Heroes, a Veteran’s Day observance to honor them with free, much-needed dental care and more.
The two-day event, a partnership of Delta Dental of New Jersey and Zufall Health, brought together 140 volunteer dental professionals and clinical and non-clinical support staff to provide services ranging from cleanings and x-rays to root canals, extractions, and even dentures.
Zufall Health’s Director of Outreach, Michelle Blanchfield was recently featured on WRNJ’s Talk About It radio show hosted by Rev. Frank Fowler to discuss public health related topics particularly immunizations as part of National Immunization Awareness Month. Other panel members were Mary Guglielmo, a Public Health Nurse Supervisor and Katie Stewart a Health Educator, both from the Warren County Health Department.
