Healthy Behaviors for Healthcare Workers

Nicole McCullough, Otterbein University


ARC Healthcare is a health technology contracting company that handles provider network development, software development, and healthcare consulting for large health plans and provider partners. ARC Healthcare is providing contracts to health providers in region 4 states to allow our focused, confidential client to make additional referrals to the providers who agree to the contract through a community care network. Patients who have been referred by the client will then be able to be seen by providers of countless practices and specialties.

ARC Healthcare partnered with the Ignite Health Foundation to organize health fairs for underprivileged communities during my time as a practicum intern. Ignite Health Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3), that was formed to improve health for the underserved.

ARC Healthcare’s partnership with the Ignite Health Foundation resulted in 3 successful health fairs in Antioch, Tennessee, Marion, Ohio, and Trotwood, Ohio. Each health fair took simple biometric screening information including height, weight, blood glucose, and cholesterol and provided attendees with laymen’s health literacy information. All venders at the health fair events advertised little to no-cost services they offered and ways to help the community’s health at little to no cost to the consumer.
