30 health fair activities to celebrate 30th anniversary

An Intermountain Health Care health fair at Logan Regional Hospital will include 30 activities to celebrate the hospital’s 30th anniversary at its current location. “This is a health fair for the whole family,” said the hospital’s Director of Communication, Doug Thompson. “We have things to do for kids, new mothers, seniors, everybody.” The day’s activities include several free health screenings. “Those include screenings for cholesterol, body fat, blood pressure, blood sugar, growth assessment, skin cancer checks, glaucoma, macular degeneration screenings and hearing tests. “Also available is a $5 test for A1C – for blood sugar – and for anyone worried about diabetes, this is the test to take and $5 is a real bargain.” Thompson said there will be free children’s DNA and fingerprinting identification kits plus exercise workshops, prize drawings and $4 bike helmets. “The first 100 people who come to the operating room tour will get a free bike helmet,” said Thompson. Logan Fire and EMS personnel will be on hand showing some of their equipment and explaining how to make home safer for the family. In addition a Life Flight Helicopter will be on display. Two free health presentations will feature Dr. Clint Field, child psychologist, talking at both 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. about “Effective Ways to Get Your Kids to Behave” and Dr. David Adams, urologist, speaking on “Bladders and Prostate Health” at noon. This health fair will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Logan Regional Hospital, 500 East, 1400 North in Logan.
