TIPP CITY — A free health fair for all members of the family is being offered by the GIVE Medical Ministry from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 22, at the Covington Eagles Hall, 715 Broadway St., Covington.
Along with valuable health screenings and information, a free healthy breakfast and door prizes will be offered to those attending. The annual health fair is an outstanding opportunity for local residents to improve their health and to learn about services provided by local health organizations.
More than 25 healthcare organizations are participating in the fourth annual GIVE Health Fair. All members of the family can participate in free health screenings for hearing, vision, cholesterol and blood glucose levels, skin cancer, blood pressure, lung capacity, physical strength, posture and more.
Literature and consultations will be available on topics such as cancer, sleep disorders, nutrition, nursing home care, ear-nose-throat issues, access to free clinics, medication review by pharmacists and free medical supply delivery.
If you or a loved one is taking multiple medications, pharmacy professors and students from Cedarville University School of Pharmacy will be available to review your medications and discuss proper administration, potential drug interactions and proper disposal of old medications. To take advantage of this review, bring your medications with you to the GIVE Health Fair.
New to this year’s health fair is a “Drug Drop Program.” Bring your unwanted or outdated medications (pills only) to the health fair for proper disposal by officers from the Miami County Sheriff’s Department who will be at this event.
Contact Tom Downs, GIVE Medical Ministry, at firstname.lastname@example.org, (937) 473-5195 or 1000 Mote Drive, Covington with any questions concerning the health fair.
