Regal Institute is dedicated to reducing health disparities among low socio-economic groups. Our programs focus on the major causes of morbidity and mortality in the community. We are committed to improving the health of residents living in Leon county and its surrounding areas, we offer series of health screening and health promotions in these areas: heart disease, diabetes, cholesterol screening and injury prevention.
Healing Touch is a collaborative effort between Regal Institute and many churches to promote wellness and improve access to healthcare through education, outreach and community activities.
Healing Touch was developed as a catalyst to engage faith-based leaders and their congregations to help reach communities with the highest rates of hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, cancer, nutrition and other health conditions through education and free health screenings. This program helps to increase community health-awareness efforts in churches from diverse populations.
Adorable Angels focuses on reducing infant mortality by providing education, counseling and healthcare for expectant and new mothers and infants.
Injury prevention program is aimed at reducing the number and severity of injuries in children.
Wellness and education centers that coordinate health education, health screenings and treatment at no cost to the clients. Our aim is to provide access to preventative health care services to those populations who are unable to afford primary care. Education and awareness are the keys to accomplishing that goal. Our outreach program meets at the 4th Saturday of each month.
The aim of this program is to promote health, preventing and limiting symptoms and disease, and reducing health disparities across the lifespan for those living or spending time in non-traditional settings (i.e. playgrounds and nursing homes). These settings result in exposure to environmental pollutants and toxins that result in health risks, symptoms, and other health conditions/diseases; including lower respiratory disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease, and complex environmental exposures that may be exacerbated by non-chemical stressors encountered in community settings, physiological function of organs and systems of the fetus/child/adolescence, and lower respiratory disease.
Risk identification and symptom management include prevention and behavior changes and actions to maintain health and prevent disease with an emphasis on the individual, family and the community at large. For purposes of this, non-traditional settings include, but are not limited to, places such as community centers; pre-school and non-traditional school environments (e.g., churches, daycare, home-based schools, dormitories, alternative schools, and playgrounds); child and older adult foster care facilities; older adult day care facilities; half-way homes; and assisted living and long-term care facilities.
Regal Institute conducts regular community health initiatives in Tallahassee, FL, and our other targeted locations that aim to improve the oral and dental health of these locations’ residents, families and communities. How is a person who regularly minds oral hygiene paid in return?
It is notable that proper oral and dental hygiene go beyond the purpose of aesthetics and maintaining a pleasant smile. The usual individual does not brush, floss, or use mouthwash regularly and properly, and yield only the results that is clean teeth. They also enjoy a lifelong health of the teeth and the gums. A person who follows proper oral and dental hygiene practices is paid in return with reduced costs in restoration, lesser cavities, and a full-functioning, possibly pain-free mouth.
The key to sharing with society the importance of proper dental practice is education and self-empowerment. Upon realizing how big investments little things like these are, and given the appropriate materials, they will surely commit. Regal Institute’s oral and dental health initiatives in our target locations carry out information education campaigns, teaching communities how to take care of their teeth and prevent gum diseases, with the use of age-appropriate educational material. We also provide tooth brushes, tooth pastes, flosses, and bottles of mouth wash to these communities.
