DCMH Healthy Fair to offer free screenings and more

GREENSBURG – Are you interested in a free lunch or the chance to win one of several door prizes? Maybe you have been meaning to get a cholesterol check, donate blood, or get a spot on your skin checked out. You can do all that and more at this year’s Healthy Fair!

On Wednesday, June 25, Decatur County Memorial Hospital will be hosting their annual Healthy Fair that offers a free lunch to everyone who attends. More than 750 people are expected to attend this community event which will feature free screenings for vision, skin cancer, bone density (osteoporosis) and more.

Thanks to the Hospital Foundation of Decatur County, this event will also be providing free comprehensive blood screenings (includes a complete blood count, glucose, creatinine, etc.). Your hospital also invites you to donate blood, as there will be a blood drive during the event hosted by the event’s platinum sponsor, South Bend Medical Foundation.

There will be many great door prizes given away and children can enjoy any of the two bounce houses or the newest feature this year, Nine13Sports Bicycle Challenge. This Challenge features eight stationary bicycles hooked up to a big screen TV which encourages kids to race across the screen in friendly competition. More great opportunities at this year’s Healthy Fair include the chance to tour a LifeLine medical helicopter and Decatur County ambulance, learn about fire safety in the Greensburg Fire Department’s Safety House and enjoy a mini Farmer’s Market.

The Healthy Fair is a great way for people to interact with our community’s health care professionals and learn how to make the most out of all the resources that are available in and around Greensburg that ensure our well-being. Thirteen of the 73 booths will be offering free screenings and all booths will provide reliable information on a wide variety of health topics. This year’s fair will be held at Greensburg Elementary School. For more information you can check out the Healthy Fair’s web page at Be sure to mark your calendars and join Decatur County Memorial Hospital along with many other businesses from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 25 at Greensburg Elementary School for a healthy day of fun!
