38th Annual Health Fair & Expo is April 26-27

Baxter Regional Medical Center, in conjunction with KTLO, Classic Hits, The Boot and KTLO.com, is once again gearing up to host the Health Fair and Expo at the Baxter County Fairgrounds on Wednesday, April 26, from 7:30 a.m to 4:00 p.m., and Thursday, April 27 from 7:30 a.m. to noon in the main exhibit building.

BRMC is once again providing free lab testing for cholesterol, blood sugar and Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA). A new test offered this year is Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), a test used to screen for and diagnose diabetes and pre-diabetes. All blood tests will be available daily until 11 a.m. only, and a 12-hour fast is recommended for most accurate results.

The Health Fair and Expo offers something for everyone's interest, with vendors featuring health information, exhibits, and demonstrations. A wide variety of information will be available, from financial planning and healthcare equipment to services for retirement living and more - all under one roof and free of charge!
