Memorial Clinic and Cooper Health Care partnered to conduct a Health Fair at Wednesday’s Dinner Bell at First United Methodist Church. Stations for blood pressure and other vital signs along with a blood draw for cholesterol, thyroid, and other basic testing were offered to those attending.
Brad Burgin, Outreach Coordinator for Memorial Clinic, said the partnership is just one of the many partnerships with other Health Care providers that enabled the clinic and doctors to reach out to the needs of the community. Burgin said the clinic intends to continue to boost its influence in the community. He stated that providing the free service would enable those tested to know any underlying issues that could enable the prevention of long-term health concerns.
