Boston buzz April 11

The Boston Family Care Clinic, open for a little more than a year, is celebrating by providing a Health Fair during the Boston Spring Fling & Auction on Saturday, April 19. The Health Fair will begin at 9 a.m. and will offer participants an opportunity to have cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure checked. The clinic will have a photo booth where participants can pose with props as they have fun with family and friends. The photos may be posted on the Boston Family Care Clinic Facebook page and a free 4”x6” photo will be available on May 1. Elizabeth Shelton, office manager and coding and education director, said the photo booth was popular at another health fair sponsored by the Southland MD group, which owns Boston Family Care Clinic.

Michael Forehand, NP, is the local provider for the clinic, said Boston Family Care Clinic signed a two-year agreement with Valdosta State University’s Nurse Practitioner School where students in the program will have internships in Boston. During the internships, students will learn about the multitude of services offered by a small-town clinic.

In addition to well and sick visits, the clinic offers sports physicals, flu shots, Department of Transportation physicals, drug testing for pre-employment and a weight management program. As a small-town clinic, patients may be seen by appointment or on a walk-in basis. New patients are being accepted, and all insurances are accepted. Self-pay prices are available upon request.

Boston Family Care Clinic is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. To contact Boston Family Care Clinic, call 229-498-1088. The Facebook page link is: tf.


The Mailman’s Daughter will hold a Chalk Paint® 101 workshop on the Second Saturday of each month and on Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. by appointment only. During the workshop, participants will learn several techniques to use with Chalk Paint® with clear and dark waxes. Chalk Paint®, a decorative paint by Annie Sloan, can be applied to most surfaces without sanding or priming and is one of the most economical ways to bring an old piece of furniture back to life.

The $75 registration fee includes all materials, and space is limited to 10 participants. To register and to submit a $25 deposit, call The Mailman’s Daughter at 229-498-1024 or send an email to
