ANNUAL HEALTH SCREENING DAY AT BOZEMAN DEACONESS HEALTH SERVICES THIS SATURDAY

MARCH 24, 2014
As part of its mission “To improve community health and quality of life,” Bozeman Deaconess Health Services once again is holding its annual Health Screening Day on Saturday, March 29, from 7 am-1 pm, offering free and reduced price health screening and wellness tips for the whole family.

Many of the popular free screenings such as bone density, glucose, hearing and heart rate will be offered, while new options include oral cancer checks, varicose veins risk, leg and grip strength and skin analysis. Information on radiology procedures such as low-dose CT scans for lung cancer, advance directives, organ donation, support groups and more will be available, along with the chance to discuss current medications with pharmacists and safely dispose of unused prescription drugs. Adults also may experience how vision is impaired with excess alcohol by trying out “drunk goggles,” learn Hands-Only CPR, and get a chair massage.

Children can attend fitness activities such as “Go Noodle” zumba, explore an ambulance, medical helicopter and highway patrol car, learn to escape a “smoke” house, and get a removable tattoo or their face painted at no charge. With bike season approaching, children are encouraged to bring along their bike helmets to make sure they still fit properly for free, or new helmets can be purchased for $15.

To soothe those morning hunger pangs and in support of healthy eating habits, staff members from BDHS and Kohl’s will be assisting children in making healthy breakfast yogurt parfaits, as part of Kohl’s Kids Eat Smart. And since BDHS wants to keep kids safe, parents can get a free digital fingerprint and photo ID of their child, and may have their child’s blood typed for only $20.

The popular blood screenings for adults which require fasting for 12-14 hours prior to testing again will be offered, including general health screen, prostate cancer, blood sugar levels, colon cancer indicators, risk of heart disease, Vitamin B and Vitamin D levels, and blood and Rh type. Charges for these tests, ranging between $15 and $30, are not submitted to insurance companies but receipts will be provided.

“This is an easy and affordable way for the whole family to get checked out for some medical issues at one time,” said Beverly Macmillan, BDHS Marketing Outreach Coordinator. “Moms, dads and kids can be screened and learn lots of valuable medical facts on prevention and treatments, all while having fun.”
