Low-Cost Lab Screenings Offered April 28th At Health Fair

MARYSVILLE – Marysville, KS – Low-cost blood profile lab screenings are the primary draw for the 11th Annual Health Fair at Community Memorial Healthcare, 708 N. 18th Street, Marysville, on Saturday, April 28th from 6-10 a.m.

“People like to attend our health fair because they can monitor their own health progress for a very reduced cost,” said Ike Sevilla, director of laboratory services at CMH. A full blood profile, including lipid, TSH, CBC, HgbA1C and CMP tests, is ran for $30. Additionally, men of any age can request a PSA for only $15.

“Because our Health Fair focuses on the lab draw, we try to have people in and out in about 20 minutes,” said CEO Curtis Hawkinson. Last year’s fair saw about 460 participants from across the region. “We have people come from towns in several neighboring counties who travel to our health fair because they know it will move quickly,” he said.

In conjunction with the Health Fair, there will be a lung exhibit set up in the CMH dining room, and will have information about COPD lung disease, set up by the respiratory therapy department. Muffins and refreshments are also available in the dining room for participants following their lab draw.

Neighboring Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church will be hosting a breakfast fundraiser in their new church hall at the same time as the Health Fair. People who participate are encouraged to walk across the street for a hearty breakfast for a free will donation following their blood draw.

Participants are asked to fast for 12-14 hours prior to their lab draw, except small amounts of water or black coffee. People should park in the south parking lot and enter at the South (main) entrance. Cash, checks and all major credit cards are accepted as forms of payment. Payment is due the day of service.
