Health & Well-being - March 2006

Allen Memorial Hospital
2nd Annual Health Fair - April 1, 2006


Allen Memorial Hospital’s second annual community health fair will be held at the new Grand Center (182 North 500 West) on Saturday, April 1st. Free and open to the public, the event will begin at 10 a.m. and continue until 1 p.m.

Make your well being a priority in life. Take this opportunity to learn more about your health through medical screenings, educational materials and resources in our community.

Health screening information may provide early disease detection to proactively address today’s most critical health issues including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, diet and exercise. Becoming aware of your health risks is important, but even more important is taking action in prevention and early detection of acute and chronic illness. Use the information and tools you acquire at the health fair to assess your health and lifestyle. Assume responsibility for your own choices through development of a personal wellness plan for maximum health throughout life. Our main goal is to help you find information you need to stay healthy.

As society ages, it is more important than ever for people to be proactive with their health. Again this year, the hospital is offering free and low-cost health screenings including a full blood chemistry profile test for $50.

The profile includes a lipid panel, complete blood count and thyroid testing. Individuals may come in for a blood draw between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. weekdays at Canyonlands Medical Center, Suite B, beginning March 13 through March 24, 2006. A 12-hour fast is recommended for best results. You may schedule an appointment by calling 259-2772, however walk-ins are welcome. Test results will be available at the April 1 health fair.

The health fair will offer a wide variety of screenings as well as information on smoking cessation, nutrition, hospice, women’s health, diabetes and much more.

Health-related businesses or organizations interested in being a part of the health fair will find many opportunities to participate. Booth space and sponsorships are available and offer exceptional community exposure. Take action and participate in this year’s health fair--if you are interested in being a sponsor or exhibitor, please contact: Su Dudenhofer @ 259-7191, extension 101, or @
