North Preston Health Fair set for April 17

ARTHURDALE — West Virginia Caring invites the community to attend the North Preston Health Fair from 7-11 a.m. April 17 at the Bruceton Fire Department in Bruceton Mills. This health fair will provide attendees an opportunity to take advantage of screenings to assess their medical health and prevent illness.

There will be a variety of screenings through a blood draw for a low fee. The prices for all other screenings have not been increased, including B12 and folate ($10), CA 125 ($16), Vitamin D ($26), multiphasic panel ($33), thyroid panel with TSH, T3 and T4 ($25), hemoglobin A1c ($13), and PSA ($23) testing. To schedule your appointment and the tests, call WV Caring at 304-864-0884 and ask for Kim.

Bonnie’s Bus will be on site. It has state-of-the-art mammography, offering three-dimensional digital mammograms and breast care education to women. This is a service of WVU Healthcare and the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center. The mammograms are billed to insurance, Medicaid or Medicare if available. Mammograms for women who do not have insurance will be covered by the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program or through special grant funds. A physician’s order is needed for a mammogram.

Masks will be required and there will be social distancing for the safety of all.

Info: Call Kim or Misty at West Virginia Caring at 304-864-0884 or toll free at 1-800-350-1161.
