Clark State Community College will host a health fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday, April 1 in the LRC, Room 207/209 on the Leffel Lane Campus.
“The health fair has been an annual event sponsored by the Health Clinic for more than 25 years,” said Roberta Richards, Health Clinic nurse at Clark State.
Richards said more than 45 agencies from Springfield, Dayton and Columbus will be on-site to provide various health screenings, including:
- Vision Screening
- Diabetes Screening
- Neck and Upper Body Massages
- Hearing Tests (Appointments preferred, call 937-323-6129 to schedule)
- Complete Lipid Profiles (four-hour fast)
- Bone Density Screening
“Everything is free except the lipid profiles,” said Richards. “They require a four-hour fast and are $20.”
The health fair presents the opportunity to learn about health and social service resources available in the community and offers educational information on specific health topics. “The health fair also provides the opportunity for the uninsured or under-insured to receive valuable health screenings at little or no cost to them,” said Richards.
The health fair is open to Clark State students, faculty, staff and the general public. There will be door prizes, popcorn, a clown and balloons.
