Free Screenings Available Tomorrow At Starke Health Fair

The Annual Starke County Health Fair will be held tomorrow. Various free screenings will be available along with a number of prizes, says Ashley Norem of IU Health Starke Hospital.

“The Health Fair includes various free screenings along with free give away prizes. One of the items will be a beautiful red leather IU Health Starke Hospital tote,” said Norem.

Norem said there are five free screenings available for anyone interested in receiving them.

“Our free screenings include blood pressure, glucose, osteoporosis, foot screenings, and clinical breast exams,” Norem explained.

The first four are performed all day, and the clinical breast screening is from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. An oral cancer screening is also available from noon until 5:30 p.m.

No appointments are necessary, and the event is co-sponsored by Community Services of Starke County and the Northwest Indiana Community Action Corporation. Refreshments will be served.
