Lovell Health Fair this weekend

The 2012 Lovell Health Fair will take place on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Lovell Community Center. Wyoming Health Fairs and North Big Horn Hospital sponsor the health fair jointly.

Individuals who took advantage of the reduced price blood draw program over the past few weeks can pick up the results of their preventative tests at the fair. Doctors and nurses from North Big Horn Hospital will be available at the fair to discuss lab results and answer questions people may have.

The health fair will also offer information for individuals who did not participate in the blood draw program. Numerous health booths, demonstrations and free screenings will be available. For parents, kid safety booths and car seat inspections will be available. Information about Vitamin D testing, Lifeline Medical Alert services, the Donor Alliance, peripheral artery and Alzheimer’s diseases will also be available.

The Children’s Resource Center will have a developmental screening booth set up. Free blood pressure checks and a “glow germ” station will also be featured at the fair.

Numerous drawings for prizes will take place. The event is free and open to the general public.
