Health Fair and Teddy Bear Clinic

Health Fair and Teddy Bear Clinic

The purpose of the health fair is to provide low cost lab work and/or free health screenings and educational exhibits to persons interested in learning how to take better care of their health. This is a non-profit community wide project in which we emphasize health education, wellness, and prevention. 

The vendor booths will be in the main cafeteria/waiting room. Sign-in for bloodwork will be inside the ER entrance. Blood draws will be done in the laboratory.  No insurance will be accepted, as these are deeply discounted rates.  Cash or Check Only, at time of draw.
The Health Fair Profile test which includes 12 tests in 1…DOES require fasting. All other test do not, so if you are only completing one of those, then you will not have to fast.

The goal of a Teddy Bear Clinic is to show children that a visit to the hospital is a place to help them receive comfort when they are sick. The idea behind this clinic is to let children know that the nurses and staff are there to make them better and help them grow up into healthy adults. Because the teddy bear is a symbol of comfort and caring, children are encouraged to bring their favorite bear or stuffed animal. With the bear as the primary patient, participants will be weighed and measured, and will go through various medical "testing". Teddy bears that need extra care will be taken care of with bandages and gauze. All furry friends be awarded with a certificate of good health to take home!

There is no cost to attend this event. We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Health Fair and Teddy Bear Clinic!
