OMAHA, Neb. – Alegent Health AfterOurs, and HyVee will sponsor a free health fair, from 8 am to noon, on Saturday, September 20th, at the HyVee Store located at 108th and Fort Streets. The health fair is free to the public, and will feature something for everyone. From blood screenings to message therapy, people can learn about their health and how to improve it. Some of the free offerings include:
  • Blood glucose levels
  • blood pressure
  • vision screenings
  • body fat analysis
  • Both a message therapist and chiropractor will be on hand to answer questions. A complete cholesterol and lipid panel can be purchased on site for only $20. Those tests are critical indicators of heart health. While we know that exercise is key to good health, many people don’t take advantage of the opportunities out there. So, the local YMCA will be on hand with information about sports programs and memberships. A licensed HyVee dietician will cover the healthy eating part of the equation with important information about diabetes and diabetes management. For the young and the young at heart, a face painter, balloon artist and clown will all provide entertainment. Even the local fire department and police station will be on hand from 10 am to Noon, to give children a chance to explore the tools of those trades. Light beverages and snacks will be served, and all are welcome.
