Appointments now available for annual Health Fair blood screenings

The 34th annual Rotary Health Fair is set for Saturday, October 28 from 7:30am-1:00pm at the Homer High School.   “It’s Your Life … Take a Day to be Well” is the theme of the fair, sponsored by Homer Kachemak Bay Rotary Club in cooperation with South Peninsula Hospital.

As part of the health fair, comprehensive blood analysis is available for only $40, a sizeable discount from the average cost of a comparable test. These tests are offered by appointment at the fair, or before the fair at the hospital with the results available for pickup at the fair.  Appointments are offered from October 9-27 in the hospital conference room on the hospital’s lower level. Click here for appointment.

In addition to the basic wellness test, additional tests available for purchase include prostate, thyroid, cardiac, vitamin D and hemoglobin A1C.  Click here for the complete list of tests available.

The purpose of the fair is to set aside just one day of your life to take advantage of free and inexpensive health screenings and up-to-date information on relevant health topics.  Over 50 exhibitors will be available to offer various health screenings, demonstrations and services, including blood pressure, vision tests, hearing tests, flu shots, fitness tests and more.   For more information call the Healthfair Hotline at 399-3158
