The Neighborhood Health Clinic announces their 10th annual Block Party. It will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2013 at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a cocktail reception, an elegant sit-down dinner and dancing to the local popular duo Cahlua and Cream.

After taking a two- year sabbatical from the Block Party, Susan Jones returns as event chair. This will be the 7th time she has chaired the event although … Read more...Read More

One of the most common misconceptions is that people believe they can get the flu from the shot. However, the shots only contain inactive strains of the virus; therefore, it is impossible … Read more...Read More
