Nothing is more important to us than the people in our communities. That’s why we take every chance we get to spend time with you by holding regular events at Johnston Health facilities.
Visiting a hospital isn’t always fun, so we like to create events that allow you to enjoy your time with us. Our events offer the opportunity to familiarize yourself with our staff and our facilities and to educate yourself about the health issues that matter most to you.
Health Chats is a seasonal speaker series by the Johnston Health Medical Staff. Each presentation features a new speaker and topic related to your wellbeing and the services that we offer at Johnston Health.
Free and open to the public, Health Chats offer a great opportunity for you to meet with medical professionals, and to learn and ask questions about health issues that matter to you. All presentations take place in the Johnston Medical Mall Auditorium in Smithfield. Refreshments including coffee, bottled water, fruit, and muffins are provided for all attendees.
To learn more about past health chats, watch videos from the presentations, or register for the next event, visit our Health Chats page.
Ladies Night Out
Johnston Health is proud to host semi-annual Ladies Night Out events. These free events provide an opportunity for women and their families to talk about their experiences and learn about women’s health. By cycling between our Smithfield and Clayton locations, we make it convenient for you to attend at least one event per year.
Each event features local vendors as well as physicians and medical professionals. Munch on delicious and healthy snacks as you discuss women’s health issues in a casual environment. Some lucky ladies will leave with raffle and door prizes! If you are looking for a stress-free opportunity to learn about mammograms, cancer treatments, gynecological health, and other issues that affect women, keep an eye out for our next event by visiting our Ladies Night Out page.
