Screenings and highly interactive health events will be the focus of the 4th annual Starke County Community Health Fair on Wednesday, May 13 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. CT at the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center in Knox.
The health information presented by physicians will range from preventative care for men and women to the importance of a good night’s sleep.
Free screenings and tests will be offered including body fat percentage, blood sugar for diabetes, strength and balance assessments, blood pressure, and a heel bone density test for osteoporosis. Those attending the event can sign up for a Heart Cart screening for $25.
Gastroenterologist Dr. Seth Tatel will answer questions about colon cancer. He will distribute take-home colorectal cancer screening kits.
