Community Health Fair returns to LMH Health on September 17

The LMH Health Community Health Fair will be back this fall!  We hope you will join us on Saturday, September 17 from 7:30 – 10 a.m. at 325 Maine. The LMH Health Laboratory will provide a comprehensive blood work profile from 7:30 – 10 a.m. for $30 ($40 for PSA). Be sure to register by September 9 at lmh.org/health-fair before prices increase by $20. According to the American Heart Association, there are not many clear symptoms for people with prediabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure. By having comprehensive lab work completed, you can learn more about your health and make changes to your well-being. 

Additional screenings provided by LMH Health and community partners will be available on the main and lower levels of LMH Health and include blood pressure checks, hearing screenings, vision screenings, blood sugar, skin cancer, bone density and stroke risk assessment. These are free screenings and no advanced registration is required. Flu shots will be available on the main level from the Visiting Nurses Association. The high-dose vaccine, typically for those over 65, will be available. This vaccine costs $65 and can be billed to Medicare. The regular dose vaccine cannot be billed to insurance and is $30, paid the day of the event by cash or check to VNA.

In addition to health screenings, many LMH Health providers and community partners will exhibit at the Health Fair. These exhibits will provide you with the opportunity to gain information, interact and ask questions on a variety of health topics. More than 20 area health agency exhibits will be available for you to stop by and ask questions related to your health. Tara Avena, a registered nurse at LMH Health, encourages everyone to attend the health fair.

“Attending the LMH Health Fair gives you a one-stop opportunity for free health screenings, low-cost blood work, flu shots, and education on health topics that affect us all,” she said.

LMH Health will provide light refreshments to Health Fair participants. There will also be the chance to win door prizes such as a free wellness coaching session, exercise bands, gift baskets and more.
