FCHD welcomes Certified Nurse Practitioner

The Fayette County Health Department has added a Certified Nurse Practitioner to our staff! Darci Moore is a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

She began her nursing career in 2006 after graduating from Ohio University as a registered nurse. She worked as a bedside nurse for 11 years at Fayette County Memorial Hospital. Darci then continued her education, receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) in 2010 from Ohio University and a Master of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Ohio University in August 2016. She started at the Fayette County Health Department in March 2017.

Darci has lived and worked in this community her entire life and she said that she is very excited to provide care to the residents of Fayette County. She resides in Washington Court House with her husband, Travis, and their two children, Mason, age 6 and Alli, age 4. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family.

Services that Darci will offer at the health department include the Vivitrol program and Family Planning. Vivitrol is a once a month injectable medication that is used to treat opiate and alcohol dependence. Family planning includes well woman visits, birth control, STD testing and treatment for both men and women.

Darci said "I am very excited about the growth of the health department and the new services that will be offered in the future. Feel free to contact me at 740-335-5910 if you have any questions."

Jowanna Hood is the winner of new FCHD summer walking program
The Rolling Rimples from the Health Department started a new walking program this summer to keep their teams motivated. It was done on the honor system and anyone interested counted their steps and turned them into the health department.

Jowanna Hood took it to heart and walked this summer!! She counted 1,025,583 steps so with that she won the $25.00 gift card. Jowanna has lost 63 pounds so far and states that she feels like she has a new lease on life. She is enjoying life more because it is easier for her to move, breathing is easier and overall doing things in life is so much more comfortable. She wants to encourage anyone who wants to lose weight to get started!!
The health department offers a program called Fayette Fat Fighters which meets weekly on Mondays and is free. Weigh-in is from 5 to 5:30 PM and then there is a class from 5:30 PM to 6 PM that is educational and motivational. It is a fun time and everyone encourages each other.

Rolling Rimples is a program where nurses from the health department come to your place of business and weigh you. It is a 4 month program and people get weighted once a month. If anyone has questions please call the health department at 740-335-5910 and ask to speak with Jeannie Bihl.
