Ocean Pines Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on March 21.
Over 35 free health screenings, including skin cancer screenings aboard the PRMC Wagner Wellness Van, will be available the day of the event and without pre-registration. The health screenings, performed by Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) healthcare specialists and other area healthcare providers, will be available to anyone looking to find out how healthy they actually are, and to learn what they can do to lead an even healthier and more productive lifestyle.
Some of the more popular screenings offered at no cost are DermaScan Skin Exams, Bone Density, Blood Pressure, Vision, Hearing, Height, Weight, Stroke and Spine Awareness, Foot Screenings, Aorta and Lower Leg Circulation Screenings.
At this year’s HealthFest, PRMC will offer attendees an opportunity to participate in a paper Diabetes screening conducted by the Peninsula Regional Diabetes and Endocrinology Center team. If determined to be at high risk, individuals will be provided education and offered a Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) blood draw. The HbA1c test is preferred because it can actually detect Diabetes, and is a much more accurate measure of a person’s health risk. Additionally, following a paper screening, the PRMC Lab team will also be collecting blood samples for the National Kidney Foundation for Creatinine and Random Glucose. Fasting is not required for either test.
HealthFest attendees will also have the opportunity to visit with over 50 exhibitors who are also joining the health fair with valuable information on their services.
For more information on HealthFest: An event for all ages, a map and a complete list of screenings and demonstrations, please visit the Peninsula Regional Health System website at www.peninsula.org/healthfest.
