Free Community Health Fair hosted by SCRMC
With the start of a new year, many individuals have made resolutions to live a healthier life, yet many avoid or delay needed care. South Central Regional Medical Center invites those ages 18 years of age and up to attend a comprehensive, free Community Health Fair Friday, February 1st. The health fair will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at South Central Place in Laurel.
Free health screenings, interactive health education booths, healthy snacks and much more will be provided to all who attend.
“We have health education, health information and numerous screenings available at no charge to the community,” says Karen Vanderslice, BSN, RN, Community Education Coordinator at South Central Regional Medical Center. “The health fair is completely free because the cost of the event is covered by the South Central Health Care Foundation with funds raised at the Art of Healing and from other fundraisers held throughout the year.”
The screenings for individuals ages 18 and up will include:
- High Blood Pressure Screening
- Body Mass Index Screening
- Bone Mineral Density Screening
