Are you interested in a free lunch or the chance to win one of several door prizes? Maybe you’ve been meaning to get a cholesterol check, donate blood or get a spot on your skin checked. You can do all that and more at this year’s Healthy Fair!
On Wednesday, June 25, Decatur County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) will host its annual Healthy Fair, offering a free lunch to everyone who attends from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.. Over 750 people are expected to attend this community event, which features free screenings for vision, skin cancer, bone density (osteoporosis) and more. Thanks to the Hospital Foundation of Decatur County, this event will also provide free comprehensive blood screenings (includes a complete blood count, glucose, creatinine, etc.). This year’s Healthy Fair platinum sponsor, South Bend Medical Foundation, will host a blood drive at this year’s event; your hospital invites you to come out and give the gift of life.
There will be many great door prizes and children can enjoy any of the two bounce houses or the newest feature this year: the Nine13Sports Bicycle Challenge. This Challenge features eight stationary bicycles hooked up to a big-screen TV, allowing kids to race across the screen in friendly competition. More great features 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 healthcare professionals and learn how to make the most out of all the resources available in and around Greensburg that ensure our wellbeing. Thirteen of the 73 booths will offer free screenings, while 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, visit www.dcmh.net/healthyfair.
