Sky Lakes Health Fair
March 7 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
A pair of inflatable walk-through lungs will be featured at the 22nd Annual Sky Lakes Community Health Fair, Saturday, March 7. Admission is free.
At roughly 10 feet tall, the lungs display the delicate inner-workings of the respiratory system’s most critical organs and contribute to an understanding of how to maintain lung health.
The health fair begins at 8 a.m. at the Klamath County Fairgrounds. In addition to the lung display, the event will include free lung function screenings, smoking cessation information, and a wide array of educational displays. The event runs until 2 p.m.
Wellness screenings at the health fair include:
- Free cholesterol (HDL, LDL, and triglycerides) screenings;
- Free blood glucose screenings; and
- Free blood pressure checks.
Fasting 8-12 hours is recommended for best cholesterol and blood glucose screening results.
Physicians from Sky Lakes Primary Care Clinic and Cascades East Family Medicine will be on hand to interpret results at no charge.
Also offered during the health fair: Free “Stop the Bleed” classes. Sessions will start on the half hour beginning at 8 a.m.; the last session begins at 1:30 p.m. Choose your class. Space is limited.
Uncontrolled bleeding is the leading cause of preventable death from trauma. The greater the number of people who know how to control an injured person’s bleeding, the greater the chances that person has of surviving the injury, said Sky Lakes Trauma Program Manager Stacey Holmes, RN, CEN, TCRN, the class instructor.
The free annual health fair is a chance to get valuable information about your health as well as learn about the many Sky Lakes services and other resources available in the community.
The event is an extension of the Sky Lakes mission to help and encourage people to make better health choices.
