Good Samaritan’s 11th annual women’s health event is a night
devoted to women in the community. This event focuses on women’s
needs, giving them a chance to learn more about the importance of maintaining
This year’s Spring Screenings event will take place on Tuesday, May
3, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Highland Woods Community Center, 1377 South Hart
Street, Vincennes, Indiana. It will feature a variety of booths from hospital
departments. Valuable health information will be the highlight of the event.
These screenings give women the opportunity to become more aware of their
current health status at absolutely no cost. This event reminds women
of the vital importance of taking care of themselves and achieving overall wellness.
Free screenings will be offered to women so they can get their health on
track. “So often, women are caught up in taking care of the needs
of their family and put their own needs aside. This event gives women
the opportunity to take one night for themselves to get a check on their
own health,” said Tiffany Conover, Director of Marketing at Good
Samaritan. “We strive to promote wellness and providing this event
to the public is our way of reaching as many women as we can to ensure
their good health. We encourage all women to come out and take advantage
of the free screenings we have to offer.”
The screenings include bone density, blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol
(LDL and HDL), colorectal take-home kits, glomerular filtration rate (kidney
function) and more. Fasting for 10 to 12 hours before these screenings
is recommended, but not required. Multiple hospital department booths
will be available offering information about certain health risks women face.
Information about osteoporosis, joint replacement education, diet and exercise,
tobacco education, cancer prevention and more will be offered. Clinicians
will also be educating about breast health along with women’s overall health.
“This is a great opportunity for women in our community,” stated
Rob McLin, President and CEO of Good Samaritan. “In order to increase
the number of screenings, we make it a goal to provide more booths and
new information each year. This is open to women 18 and older, and I strongly
encourage each and every one to come to the health screenings.”
Women owe it to themselves to take the initiative and stay informed about
their health status. The Spring Screenings event on May 3 is a great time
for women to achieve all of these things and more. Hors d’oeuvres
will be served and door prizes will be given away every 15 minutes throughout
the evening. Some of the prizes include: Awapuhi hair products from Dimensions
Professional Hair Salon, a Fossil watch from Piper Diamond Co., Glo Minerals
make-up kit with bag and $75 gift certificate from Good Samaritan’s
Skin Spa, Holiday World and Indians Baseball tickets from the Original
Company, items from Good Samaritan’s Gift Shop, flower baskets and
so much more!
