Essentia Health-Fosston hosts women’s health day

Essentia Health-Fosston is hosting a women’s health day focusing specifically on pap smears and mammography on Monday, Sept. 13.

Christina Leonard, a family medicine nurse practitioner at Essentia Health-Fosston, will be seeing patients during normal clinic hours of 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for paps, education and scheduling other screenings, such as mammograms, as needed. Essentia Health-Fosston is located at 900 Hilligoss Blvd. SE. Appointments are available for new and current patients as well as those who don’t normally see Leonard.

Often, women play a critical role in the health and overall wellness of their family. However, they often are so focused on the care of their spouse, children or others that they neglect their own needs. It is crucial that women take the time for themselves and maintain their health as well.

“It’s important that women make time to care for themselves,” shares Leonard. “Doing so makes your family and community healthier.”

Appointments can be scheduled by calling the clinic at (218) 435-1212. Learn more about all the services offered at Essentia Health-Fosston by visiting
