Health Fair Offered in Dodge March 14 - CANCELLED

Methodist Fremont Health will hold a free health fair in Dodge on Thursday, March 14, from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m., at the Dodge Family Care clinic located at 923 2nd Street in Dodge. No appointment is necessary.  

Free screenings for skin cancer, blood pressure, lung function and colon cancer (take-home kits) and reduced cost wellness blood profiles will be offered, along with other health and wellness information.

Wellness blood profiles, available for $40 per person, include testing for diabetes, lipids, liver function, kidney function, anemia, and infection.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), and Hemoglobin A1c tests are offered for $20 each.

Hepatitis C Antibody testing will be also be offered at no cost. A positive result, indicating an antibody against the Hepatitis C virus, will require further testing, in consultation with your personal physician, to determine the significance of this result. All positive Hepatitis C tests will be reported to the State of Nebraska Department of Health with your name and birth date. We are unable to offer anonymous testing at this time.

A 10 to 12 hour fast is recommended for ideal results. If you are taking medications, take them as scheduled, unless directed differently by your physician. You may drink water or black coffee while fasting. Participants will receive a printout of their results along with a definition of tests and normal values. Screenings are not intended as a substitute for regular medical exams. All tests are being offered at a reduced fee and cannot be filed through health insurance. Cash or personal checks will be accepted on the day of testing.

In the event of inclement weather, announcement will be made on KHUB and KETV Channel 7.
