One Stop Health Fair set for Sept. 13 at CRSI

CRSI’s free annual One Stop Health Fair is set for 1-5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13, in the CRSI building on East U.S. Route 36. Several screenings will be available, including those for glaucoma, blood pressure, glucose, grip assessment, bone density, dermascan, spinal evaluation and swallowing disorders.

Those attending the health fair will have the chance to operate the da Vinci Robot from a surgeon’s perspective. The robot is a surgical system used for minimally invasive procedures.

Also on site will be the Mercy Health mobile mammography unit (call 937-523-9332 for appointments); the Second Harvest Food Bank from 1 to 3 p.m. for those who meet federal guidelines; and vaccines for flu, shingles, tetanus and pneumonia. Several other vendors and agencies will be available to provide information.

Additional free parking for the Health Fair is next door at SVG Motors. Parking will be behind SVG Motors in the designated grass area.

Visitors can access the Health Fair through the East state Route 29 entrance.
