HSHS St. Clare, Prevea Now Offer DOT Medical Exams in Oconto County

HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital and Prevea Health now offer DOT medical exams at five locations throughout Oconto County: Oconto Falls, Suring, Gillett, Mountain and Lena.

A DOT medical exam is the evaluation required in order to operate a commercial vehicle in the United States. It is referred to as “medical fitness for duty” examination which ensures that each driver is capable and healthy enough to successfully complete the duties associated with commercial driving. DOT medical exams include vision, hearing, blood and urinalysis screenings, and are conducted by licensed medical examiners listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) National Registry.

“This is a convenient, local service for anyone needing to maintain or obtain their commercial driver’s license (CDL),” said Jennifer Gibbons, APNP, FNP-BC, who is one of four FMCSA-licensed medical examiners now seeing patients at HSHS St. Clare/Prevea Health locations throughout Oconto County.

The 68th annual Oconto Falls High School Senior Tea took place on Wednesday, May 1 at Grace Lutheran Church.

The event has been sponsored by the Oconto Falls Women’s Club since 1951 and was originally held at the Cook Memorial Library and area homes. In 1961, Grace Lutheran Church in Oconto Falls became its new location and has been the host site since that time!

The Senior Tea traditionally occurs on the first Wednesday in May and invites OFHS senior girls and their mothers or female guests to spend the evening sharing their accomplishments and dreams for the future. At this year’s event, snacks, desserts, and punch were served in the lower level of Grace Lutheran Church by the Oconto Falls Women’s Club members who coordinated the event, including President Romelle Delzer, Verna Peterson, Jeannie Waschbisch, Sally Holtz, Rachel Collar, Jeannie Peebles, and Laurie Fries.

Entertainment for the evening was provided by the Oconto Falls High School Vocal Jazz Ensemble, Chamber Singers, and several vocal soloists performing a variety of classical and musical theatre selections.
