VISALIA – Kaweah Delta Health
Care District has a new, redesigned website (KaweahDelta.org) that is user-friendly
and interactive for people seeking health information.
The new website gives people
an opportunity to take one of 15 free health risk assessments to identify factors
that put them at risk for health conditions such as diabetes, stroke, cancer,
heart attacks and more.
The 5-7 minute health risk
assessments are available by clicking on “Screenings and Assessments.” Everyone who completes one by Friday, May 17, will be
entered into a drawing for a chance to win a 7-inch Kindle Fire e-book reader
with Wi-Fi connectivity. Those who
are deemed at highest-risk for a health condition can choose to take advantage
of a free one-on-one consultation with a Kaweah Delta staff member. Completing an
assessment could help save a person’s life as people are often unaware of
factors that put them at risk for diabetes, stroke, cancer, or heart disease or
Following the survey, users
can opt-in to receive newsletters with health tips. The following health risk
assessments are available online:

Additionally at the new KaweahDelta.org, visitors can click on “Healthy Living Online” for
health videos, articles, recipes and tips of the day. They can also learn about
all the services provided at Kaweah Delta and share individual pages of the
website via social media outlets.
