Good Samaritan Offering Men’s Wellness Fair

Good Samaritan Offering Men’s Wellness Fair

It’s that time of year again for men in the community to get a check-up on their health at the Good Samaritan Men’s Wellness Fair. The Men’s Wellness Fair will be held October 10 at Highland Woods Community Center, located at 1377 S. Hart Street in Vincennes from 7 to 10 a.m. and again from 4 to 6 p.m. (EST). Pre-registration will be required for the event.

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. The blood draw is offered free to participants and is made possible in part by support from the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation.

Several hospital departments will also be on hand to share information about their services. Back again this year, after a three-year hiatus, will be hot food. Breakfast sandwiches will be served during the morning session and hot dogs will be served during the evening session.

“Our Men’s Wellness Fair is our most popular free screening event,” stated Rob McLin, Good Samaritan President & CEO. “Many of the men who attend are reluctant to seek out regular medical care, so this wellness fair gives them another option to get the screenings they need in a casual atmosphere. Evidence has repeatedly shown that early detection and prevention are two important components of good health.”

Attendees must pre-register for the Men’s Wellness Fair online at or by calling 812-885-3336 by October 2. Fasting for 10-12 hours before the lab draw is recommended, but not required.
