Annual Health Fair

This morning, I helped once again with the annual health fair hosted by the hospital in Meade. We offer some basic lab tests, like a CBC (complete blood count), Chemistry (electrolyte levels), Cholesterol, and PSA for men at a very low cost. In addition, DEXA scans for osteoporosis screening, BIO-Zs for heart function, and breast exams were available. People also have the opportunity to get their blood pressure, blood sugar, oxygen saturation, gait and balance, and height and weight checked. Usually nearly 500 people participate, although this year seemed a little bit slower for some reason. I was one of the blood drawers but I don’t think that I drew near as many people this year as last. It was still fun to see all of the people come through, especially those that I know from working at the hospital.
