Memorial Community Hospital & Health System and the Blair Family YMCA are teaming up for the 1st Annual Community Health Fair on Tuesday, April 7th, from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm at the YMCA, located at1278 Wilbur Street in Blair. Through this health fair, MCH&HS and the YMCA hope to encourage individuals and families to take control of their health by making smart, healthy choices. Community members of all ages are welcome to attend this event.
Informational booths will be present and health screenings will also be available. For those wishing to have a booth, the event is free to non-profit groups, and $25 will be charged to for-profit organizations. If a free health screening is provided, the fee will be waived. The event is free to guests; however, there will be a minimal fee for certain screenings being offered. Biometric screenings including total cholesterol, HDL, blood glucose, blood pressure, and body fat will be available. Blood screenings will require fasting. The first 100 people to get their blood drawn will get the cost partially subsidized by the MCH Foundation.
If you have questions or would like to participate in this year's Community Health Fair, please contact Laura Willey at 402-426-1494 or Molly Dahlgren at 402-426-1464.
