Portage Health is hosting its fifth annual Health and Safety Fair on Saturday, June 1 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its main location in Hancock. The annual event is free to the public with health screenings, giveaways, tours of the facility, healthy snacks and much, much more.
“We hope you and your family will take time out of your busy schedule to join us this year, and take advantage of these free screenings and activities,” said Jim Bogan, president/CEO of Portage Health.
This year’s free screenings include total cholesterol, blood glucose, bone density, hearing, heart rate, pulse oximetry, pediatric breathing problems, body mass index, waist circumference and vision.
Back by popular demand is the car seat clinic, where parents work with experts to ensure their car seat is as safe as possible for their children. One hundred lucky kids will also leave with a free professionally fit bike helmet.
New for 2013 are health presentations by medical staff, including pediatrician Dr. Anas Jaber, and physical therapists Mark Kargela and Mallory Rojewski.
There is no preregistration for the event, and the entire community is invited. Visit portagehealth.org/fair, or call (906) 483-1153 for more information.
