Mercy to host wellness fair

Mercy Regional Medical Center will host the third annual MyHealth Community Wellness Fair on Saturday, Oct. 16, from 7:30-11: 30 a.m.

The fair will be held on the east end of the first floor of the Mercy Medical Plaza. Visitors should enter via the building’s east entrance, by Mercy Regional Breast Care Center and Durango Family Medicine.

For a $35 fee (cash or check only), participants will receive lipid profile, blood pressure, body mass index, complete metabolic panel and complete blood count (without differential) tests. Accurate testing requires fasting 12 hours prior to lab tests (drinking water will not affect test accuracy).

Carotid vascular ultrasound stroke screening and screenings for lung function, breast cancer, heart rhythm (EKG) and discussion with a health professional will be provided at no cost.

Additional lab screenings for diabetes, prostate cancer and thyroid function will be provided for $10 to $15 each.

Call 764-2700 for more information.
