Hepatitis C Screenings

Hepatitis C affects millions of Americans, but most people don’t know they have the virus. And that can be deadly because hepatitis C is a leading cause of liver cancer. Saint Luke’s wants to help protect you. During August, you can get a simple, finger-prick blood test that will tell whether you have the hepatitis C virus. This screening is available  at all five metro-area Saint Luke’s locations.
For more information, call 816-932-5100. That’s 816-932-5100.

Project ElderCool

  • Project ElderCool is Bishop Sullivan Center’s annual effort to provide free air conditioners to Kansas City’s low-income elderly.
  • 2014 marks the 15th summer of Project ElderCool.
  • We started Project ElderCool in 2000 in response to 21 heat-related deaths in Kansas City during the prior summer. No solution was offered, to a serious problem.  (435 installed the 1st summer)
  • Last year we installed 259 units. Since the program started, we’ve installed more than 5,200 units. And now, you rarely hear of heat-related deaths each summer.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease where the immune system turns against parts of the body it is designed to protect. This leads to inflammation and damage to various body tissues. Lupus can affect many parts of the body, including the joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and brain. Although people with the disease may have many different symptoms, some of the most common ones include extreme fatigue, painful or swollen joints (arthritis), unexplained fever, skin rashes, and kidney problems. At present, there is no cure for Lupus.
