Health Careers Center
The ECSU Health Resource Center is a health resource services outreach center primarily funded by the North Carolina Health and Wellness Trust and operated by the Department of Health Professions of Elizabeth City State University. The primary objective of the center is prevention of the onset and progression of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases among at risk and low income populations in Pasquotank and surrounding counties of Northeastern North Carolina.
The center conducts routine risk assessment screenings in and outside of the center (churches and Food Lion stores), provides blood sugar, blood pressure, hemoglobin A1C, and total cholesterol monitoring for our clients and accepts referrals from several doctors' offices and the community care clinic in Elizabeth City for patient observation and monitoring. We also offer medication therapy reviews to our clients and make recommendations to their primary care physicians for their consideration.
