St. Mary's Goes Country for Family Health Celebration
St. Mary’s Medical Center kicks off Jackson County Family Week again this year by hosting a free Family Health Celebration on Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m.-noon with activities for the whole family.
Attendees will feel as if they’re “down on the farm” with a petting zoo and pony rides for children. Adults can receive free health screenings, learn from a master gardener or check out the Farmer’s Market.
Free health screenings include cholesterol checks (fasting or non-fasting for the first 60 people), blood pressure, blood sugar, bone density, foot screening, stroke risk assessment, sleep assessment, and balance and grip testing. A limited number of carotid doppler screenings are available. Those interested in the carotid screening may make an appointment the day of the fair.
Invite your family, friends and neighbors to attend this annual community event. It’s fun and it’s FREE
