VCHS Foundation Donates to VCHS Diabetes Education Program

Valley County Health System (VCHS) will host its annual health fair – “Boardwalk to Better Health” – from 6 – 10 a.m. on Tues., June 18 at VCHS Hospital, Ord. The free health fair will feature discounted labs, wellness screenings, yoga, vendors, breakfast, and more

One of the biggest attractions of the VCHS Health Fair continues to be the discounted lab tests, charging attendees only the cost to cover supplies. The following discounted labs are offered during the health fair 

Health Screen: ($35) Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Complete Blood Count, TSH, Lipid Panel – Cholesterol, Triglycerides, HDL and LDL

PSA:  ($15) Prostate cancer screening is recommended for males over the age of 50. 

A1C: ($20) Test that measures your average blood sugar for the past two to three months.

Protime: ($10) Test for patients on Warfarin.

Those who participate in the blood chemistry draw will be mailed their results and will be responsible for contacting their medical providers if they have values outside of the normal range. Fasting is necessary prior to the blood chemistry draw, including the consumption of caffeine or decaf coffee. A to-go breakfast will be served at the fair, so participants may eat after their blood is drawn.

Sarah Brinkman will be offering a restorative slow-flow yoga class during this event. The class will begin at 8 AM at the VCHS Conference Center. If you would like to participate please call to reserve your spot!

Pre-registration is available at ValleyCountyHealthSystem.org or by picking up a pre-registration form at the hospital registration desk or any VCHS Medical Clinic location. Pre-registration is recommended for anyone wishing to have a blood chemistry drawn but not required.
