Annual Health Fair to be held March 31st

The Marshall-Putnam Farm Bureau Women's Committee will hold its annual Health Fair on March 31st at the M-P Farm Bureau building in Henry.  This is available to all Marshall-Putnam Farm Bureau members.  There are 100 appointment times available from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.  You must have an appointment to attend.

Comprehensive Metabolic Panel - $75.00  (This is a fasting blood test which means no food or drink for 12 hours prior, except water which is encouraged).  This panel consists of a lipid profile (tests cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL and LDL), a complete metabolic panel (tests fasting blood sugar, electrolyte balance, kidney and liver function), and a complete blood count (tests red blood count, white blood count, hemoglobin, etc.)

Participants may opt to add TSH or PSA tests at an additional cost of $12.00 each, however these tests are only available when done in conjunction with the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel.  The PSA Blood test checks prostate levels, and the TSH test checks thyroid function. 

Screenings are being performed by Optimum Health Solutions, Peoria, Illinois.  Cash only will be accepted.  No checks.  Payment will be collected at the event.  Test results will be sent directly to the participant via mail.

To schedule an appointment call the Farm Bureau office at 309-364-2501.  Last date to schedule an appointment is Wednesday, March 23, 2016.
