Atlantic General Hospital Offers Free Health Screenings at the Pavilions
In today’s economy there’s not much that can one expect to
get for free; but, we all need as many freebies as we can find. That is
why Atlantic General Hospital has teamed up with the Pavilions owner in
Ocean Pines to offer health screenings, information, education and fun
activities for children and adults – all for free to everyone.
On August 1, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., there will be a health fair at the Pavilions
office complex. Blood draws for cholesterol, glucose and PSA’s will
begin at 8 a.m. Remember, a 12-hour fast is required. More than 35 exhibitors
will be set up, many offering screenings for hearing, vision, foot health,
respiratory, blood pressure, diabetes, spine health, dentistry and weight
management. You can also register to become part of Healthy U Delmarva
or learn about sun safety.
Beginning at 8:30, there will be 20-minute educational sessions on Alzheimer’s
disease, hearing loss, childhood weight risks, Pilates and diabetes. If
you would like to know more about any of these subjects, come out and
attend the educational sessions. While at the fair, you might want to
take advantage of the free massages that will be going on throughout the morning.
All exhibitors are health related and will have lots of information about
health and wellness. Having fun is a great step toward wellness; so we
have fun activities too. There will be a moon bounce for the children
and face painting. You can visit “ Germ City ” and learn how
many diseases are spread. What a fun and healthy way to spend a Saturday
morning. This joint venture is sponsored by Atlantic General Hospital
and CAMBR with assistance from many businesses in the community. Come
join us on August 1 and see what we have to offer for FREE.
