Midvalley Health Fair in El Jebel this Saturday
Aspen Valley Hospital’s Midvalley Health Fair is scheduled from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday at the El Jebel Community Center/Eagle County government building.
The fair will include screening and information stations, and prizes focused on healthy living will be awarded to participants via a drawing at the conclusion of the fair.
The fair will not include laboratory testing, as lab tests — including a fasting blood sugar and lipid profile — are being offered throughout most of the year for $25.
Health fair participants should arrive at least an hour prior to closing. Free screenings include air flow and oximetry, blood pressures, body-mass index, eye pressure, oral exams, orthopedic exams, stress levels and vision.
Screeners include nurses, respiratory therapists, physicians and surgeons, an eye doctor and dental hygienist.
Both trivalent and quadrivalent flu vaccines will be given for $25 and $35, respectively. Pneumonia vaccines will be offered for free to those with a Medicare card.
Information stations will address topics such as domestic violence and sexual assault, head-injury prevention, integrative medicine, nutrition and recipes (with food samples), stress reduction, weight management and early detection of breast cancer. Emergency personnel will offer CPR and AED training and practice; certification cards will not be issued. Community Health Initiatives will bring its marijuana and alcohol impairment “goggles” for demonstration and will answer questions about all forms of marijuana. Transformational Therapies will offer free chair massages.
