Piedmont Athens Regional and the Athens YMCA created a partnership in 2012 to promote wellness in our community. 

April Dorsett, BSN, RN is a Community Educator and Safe Kids Coordinator for Piedmont Athens Regional. April is on site at the Athens YMCA two days a week to offer members free individual blood pressure screenings, nutritional consults and certified wellness coaching. Members are referred to other Piedmont Athens Regional services if needed.

Our shared goal is to increase awareness and knowledge while providing health programs to members to reduce risk factors associated with chronic diseases. Together we are committed to empowering our YMCA members to improve and maintain their health.

Availability: Mondays & Thursdays by appointment. Email to set your appointment up today!
