Women’s Health Week 

Downeast Healthcare Services in Ellsworth are celebrating Women’s Health Week, Thursday that meant free clinics.Women without health insurance and who had not had an exam for two years were offered free health check-ups including pap smears.Downeast Healthcare’s Calais and Machias offices took part too.It’s the third year for the free clinics. They tell us the turn-out has been larger each year.”We know that there are so many women who take care of their families but they don’t always take care of themselves. It’s hard sometimes with everything people have to afford right now. Women tend to put themselves on the back burner.”Refreshments were served at the clinics and there were door prizes too.
