Fall into Health Fair Saves More than Money

KSCB News - October 15, 2009 12:00 am

Area residents have a choice. They can wait unti their health turns

south and pay lots of money for testing. Or they can pay 35 dollars

to attend Saturday’s Fall into Health Fair from 8 am to 3 pm at the

Seward County Activity Center. Southwest Medical Centers Nancy

Kletchka says the fair will save more than your pocket book. “We kind

of finally dubbed ourselves the stimulus health committee,” Kletchka

said. “We know people are struggling right now and know that health

care might be something they might cut out and if they don’t have

symptoms they don’t do anything. That’s when you really need to

be tested is when you don’t have symptoms because you can catch

something early enough that you can end up having a good life

afterwards.”

Seward County Health Department’s Elizabeth Irby says preventitve

measures are the direction to go. “Prognosis is so much better if

you do preventitive testing ahead of time so you have baselines.

If you were to come down with an illness or a disease then you have

a baseline to go by.”

Some of the tests includ lipid profiles, metabolic profile, complete

blood count, prostate specific antigen, thyroid studies, cancer

screenings and more. Some of the tests require an eight hour fast.

KSCB/KLDG is one of the event’s sponsors. We will broadcast

live Saturday morning.
