Good Samaritan is offering a Men’s Wellness Fair this month. The
event will take place on Tuesday, September 29 at Highland Woods Community
Center, located at 1377 S. Hart Street in Vincennes from 7 to 10 a.m.
and again from 4 to 7 p.m. (EST). Pre-registration will be required for
the event, as space is will be limited to accommodate social distancing.
Because of the global pandemic, this year’s event will be very different
than before. “Many events and health fairs have been cancelled this
year due to COVID-19,” said Tiffany Conover, Director of Marketing
at Good Samaritan. “But we know how important these yearly screenings
are to the men in our community and did not want to take this opportunity
away from them.”
This event, which was previously called the Men’s Health Tune Up,
will be simplified to only include health screenings this year –
thus the one-time name change to Men’s Wellness Fair. The free screenings
offered will include blood pressure, colorectal take-home kits, pulse
oximetry, and a lab draw that will test blood sugar, lipid profile (total
cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides), glomerular filtration rate (kidney
function), and PSA for prostate cancer.
Attendees must pre-register for the Men’s Wellness Fair online at
gshvin.org/wellnessfair or by calling 812-885-3336. All attendees will
be socially distanced and must wear a mask. Fasting for 10-12 hours before
the lab draw is recommended, but not required.
“We have taken precautions to ensure a safe wellness fair for all
said Rob McLin, Good Samaritan President and CEO. “We encourage men
to register for and take advantage of the free screenings and health information.”
