The community is encouraged to join Valley Health War Memorial Hospital
on Saturday, July 21 from 8 a.m. – 12 noon for our Community Health
Fair. The event will be held rain or shine at War Memorial Hospital, 1
Healthy Way, Berkeley Springs, WV.
“In addition to health and wellness exhibits and free health screenings,
the Community Health Fair is the perfect opportunity to meet medical professionals
outside the traditional hospital or office walls,” says Heather
Sigel, Vice President, War Memorial Hospital.”
This year, War Memorial Laboratory staff are offering comprehensive bloodwork
FREE to the first 100 individuals, compliments of the War Memorial Hospital
Development Fund. The Community Wellness Panel includes a complete blood
count (CBC); (CMP) comprehensive metabolic panel measuring sugar (glucose)
level, electrolytes, kidney and liver function; a lipid profile (HDL,
LDL and Triglycerides) and (TSH) thyroid gland test. A 12-hour fast is
required for blood work.
Free screenings available at the Health Fair include balance and falls,
blood pressure, body composition analysis, hearing and vision tests, pulse
oximetry, metabolic age, BMI and early childhood development screenings
offered by Starting Points. Seated massage and a spin bike demonstration
will also be available.
Back by popular demand, a Teddy Bear Clinic will be offered, where kids
will receive a FREE stuffed bear (while supplies last) to accompany them
throughout the health fair. There will also be a chance to explore emergency
and specialized vehicles and a helicopter, plus a drawing to win one of
four FREE mountain bikes.
The public is encouraged to bring items to donate to the Backpack Program
for Morgan County. A list of items needed may be obtained by contacting
Starting Points of Morgan County.
A free light breakfast as well as other prizes and giveaways will be available
while they last.
