2018 Community Health Fair

2018 Health Fair

Join Bozeman Health for our Annual Health Fair: Spring Into Wellness. As part of our mission to improve community health and quality of life, we are pleased to host this health fair. This is a great opportunity to receive low-cost and free preventive screenings for risk factors that often have no symptoms. Participating in screenings can help you proactively identify risk factors that contribute to chronic illness. In addition to screenings, the health fair brings together a variety of community resources, services, and information.

Join us on Saturday, April 7th from 7 a.m. to Noon at Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital to get screened, connect with the community, and win prizes!

Below is a list of screenings and services.

HealthScreen………..$40.00 (Chemistry Panel, Lipid Panel, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) & Complete Blood Count) A chemistry screen is a blood test that measures the levels of several substances (such as electrolytes) in your blood. A chemistry screen provides information about your general state of health and helps your health professional detect certain abnormalities or determine whether treatment for a specific problem is effective.

C-Reactive Protein (CRP)………$20.00
CRP is produced by the liver. The level of CRP rises when there is inflammation throughout the body. An abnormal result means you have inflammation in the body.
Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) ……. $20.00
PSA is a specific protein produced exclusively by the prostate gland. Findings of elevated PSA are useful in early detection of prostate cancer.
A1C………. $20.00
The A1C test is a common blood test used to diagnose type 1 and type 2 diabetes as well as check how well you are managing your diabetes.
Vitamin B12…………..$30.00
This is a screening test for Vitamin B12 levels. Vitamin B12 is essential to form and maintain healthy red blood cells and nerve cells.
Vitamin D…………..$30.00
This is a screening test for Vitamin D levels. There are two ways to obtain Vitamin D. The first is from direct sunlight on the skin and the second is through diet.

Colorectal Cancer Screening
Many colorectal cancers can be prevented through regular screening. Screening can find precancerous polyps— abnormal growths in the colon or rectum—so that they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Bozeman Health GI Clinic will be available to discuss the need for a colon cancer screening and the benefits of screening colonoscopies versus the FIT test.
Hearing screenings
Bozeman Health’s Audiologists will look in your ears to check the health of your outer ear (including wax build-up) and perform a basic pass/refer hearing screening to let you know if further evaluation is recommended. They will also be available to answer questions about hearing health in general including hearing protection.
Oral Cancer Screening
The goal of oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early when there is a greater chance for a cure.
Peripheral Neuropathy Screenings
Dr. Ebert of Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic will be performing Neuropathy Screenings and will be happy to answer any foot health-related questions. Peripheral neuropathy, a result of damage to your peripheral nerves, may cause weakness, numbness or pain in your feet. Neuropathy is often related to diabetes, however, it may have other causes. Numbness of the feet can lead to wound development and other complications.
