   Blood Pressure Checks
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force applied to the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood through the body.  The pressure is determined by the force and amount of blood pumped, and the size and flexibility of the arteries.  

Blood pressure is continually changing depending on activity, temperature, diet, emotional state, physical state, and medication use.  We provide free blood pressure checks daily at KCHD between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:30 pm.

     Lice Treatment

Head lice are small parasitic insects.  Head lice are about the size of a sesame seed and live on the human scalp.  They are brownish, tan or gray in color and move by crawling. 

Lice do not jump or fly, and do not transmit diseases. They feed on human blood and without it they can't survive.  Head lice can only live on human scalps.  

Lice Treatment and counseling is available on a walk-in basis Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm.  The charge for each treatment (one bottle) is $7.00.  If you have straight Medicaid, we can bill your insurance. 

No one who is pregnant, under the age of 2, has a history of seizures, or is allergic to ragweed will be given treatment.

One household member can purchase treatments for the entire family.
