preregistration or request an early-draw appointment online.
The HRRMC Health Fair offers six basic low-cost screenings including blood
chemistry ($35), PSA ($30), hemoglobin Alc ($30), blood count ($20), vitamin
D ($45), and testosterone ($45). Instead of sending the lab tests to an
outside laboratory, the lab tests are performed locally at HRRMC, and
the proceeds are reinvested in Wellness U, the hospital's community
Free screenings available on the day of the health fair include prediabetes,
chiropractic, body composition, blood pressure, pulmonary, skin, postural,
nutrition, and more. Participants may preregister for an early-draw appointment
and avoid the lines, then come the day of the fair to take advantage of
the free screenings.
Attending the HRRMC Health Fair does not replace a regular checkup with
your physician, and participants are advised to make an appointment with
their primary care provider to interpret test results. For questions about
the Health Fair, contact Jon Fritz at (719) 530-2057 or visit hrrmc.com.
