OakBend Medical Center and OakBend Medical Group will be holding a health fair designed for adults 62+ on Wednesday, October 17 from 8am – Noon at the hospital’s Jackson Street Campus. The attendees will receive complimentary valet parking courtesy of Classic Chevrolet.
The health fair will offer free health screenings such as blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, balance and strength testing and memory testing. Additionally, two of the Medical Group’s cardiologists will be onsite to do preliminary checks for carotid artery, other veins and arteries, abdominal area aneurysms, and an echocardiogram. These preliminary tests will be done at no cost, however, they are not conclusive tests and the doctors will make no diagnosis. This will allow the cardiologists to assist in early detection of potential issues. Those wishing to do these tests will sign up for a time slot at the event. Testing will take approximately 15minutes. Flu shots will be offered and the attendees will need to provide Medicare or Insurance information for the test.
In addition to the free testing, there will be vendors set up to explain their services and to speak with the attendees to explain what services available. Vendors include of a variety of services directed toward seniors. There will be videos from doctors explaining topics such as Alzheimer’s and Diabetes in the elderly.
Attendees are encouraged to RSVP to 281-633-4954.
