Public Health Nursing provides several types of health screenings--some on-going and some scheduled at special times of the year.  No office fee is charged. Most screenings are given at the Community Resource Center in Idaho Springs during regular business hours, by appointment, or drop-in as nurses are available.  Some screenings can be done on-site at schools or place of business.  Screenings may be free or at low cost depending on the type of health issue.  The following are a list of screenings provided.  For more details or for an appointment, call a Public Health Nurse at (303) 670-7546.

Cardiovascular Health Screening
Free cholesterol and blood sugar screening available for community members 18 years and older at the Community Resource Center in Idaho Springs. Screenings are sponsored by Colorado Heart Healthy Solutions and Clear Creek Public and Environmental Health. Walk-ins for screenings are welcome on Mondays (8 am - 11:15 am). Appointments can be scheduled Tuesdays-Fridays. Fasting is not “required”, however, an 8-hour fast provides the most accurate results. Allow 30 minutes for screening. Call for questions or appointments: 303-670-7547


Women's Wellness Day
Every year, early in the fall, Clear Creek County Public & Environmental Health arranges for the mobile mammography unit to spend a day in Idaho Springs. In 2015, the October visit filled up with overflow and we arranged for a second visit in January of 2016. This is a very convenient option for this very important screening! Please call if you would like to participate or if you have questions about getting a mammogram “on the bus”!!
