“Know Your Numbers” Health Fairs Return to Aurora and Cassville

March 31, 2017


Are you at risk of having diabetes, heart disease or other chronic conditions? It may be time to “Know Your Numbers,” the focus of two health fairs coming to Mercy hospitals in Cassville and Aurora in May.

The public is invited to attend either event, which will include interactive booths with health information and services. The first is planned for May 3 at Mercy Hospital Aurora; the second will be held on May 11 at Mercy Hospital Cassville.

Participants can expect the following reduced-cost lab screenings:   

  • Comprehensive health panel (complete metabolic profile, lipid profile, complete blood count), $15
  • PSA Test (prostate cancer screening), $10
  • Hgb A1c (average blood glucose), $5
  • EKG (heart screen), $10
  • PFT (lung screen), $10
  • TSH (thyroid test), $5

“If detected early, a lot of conditions could be prevented,” said Donna Medlin, Mercy dietitian. “If you’re coming to either event, it’s important to fast for 12 hours before having blood drawn.”

The “Know Your Numbers” health fair Wednesday, May 3, will run from 6 to 10 a.m. in the Carol Morris Conference Room at Mercy Hospital Aurora, located at 500 S. Porter Avenue. The health fair on Thursday, May 11, will last from 6 to 10 a.m. at Mercy Hospital Cassville inside Conference Room C, located at 94 Main Street.

No registration is required for either health fair; participants will be screened on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 417-847-6000 (Cassville) or 417-678-7800 (Aurora).
