Johnson County has again teamed with Health Fairs of Wyoming to bring low-cost health screenings to residents of the county.
The Johnson County Health Fair's blood draws will happen this week in Buffalo and the next week in Kaycee.
There are many different types of tests and health screens to choose from and discussing which ones you need with your healthcare provider is a good idea to make sure all risks and all existing conditions are looked into.
The blood draws in Buffalo will be Monday through Friday at the fairgrounds from 7 to 10am all week.
The draws in Kaycee will be at the Kaycee Clinic on Wednesday, February 20 and Thursday, February 21st from 7:30 to 10:30 am.
Marcy Schueler, Marketing Director at JCHC, tells us what happens after the blood draws.
The screenings available from the Health Fair screenings are: Chem Panel, C Reactive Protein, Hemogram, Colo Kit, Health Assessment, Thyroid panel, Hemoglobin A1C, Ferritin, PSA (for men), Vitamin D Screen and Blood Type.
Last year's Health Fair had over 35 booths for people to visit and see what's available to better their health or learn about new products and services that are being offered.
People could check their blood pressure, have vision and hearing screenings, have a BMI (Body Mass Index) check, or check their dental health.
There will be some fun booths as well like last year's kids' fishing booth where they can win healthy, nutritious snacks and if the weather is cooperative, a bounce house will be set up outside for the kids to play in.
