01/05/2017

Eureka, CA (January 5, 2017) – St. Joseph Health – Humboldt County will offer its annual Health, Wellness and Resource Fair on Sat., Feb. 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bayshore Mall in Eureka.

There will be a variety of free tests available to the public including body fat testing; blood pressure; fingerstick tests for cholesterol and glucose (no fasting required), flu shots and much more.

In addition, coupons will be distributed for low-cost blood draws beginning at 10 am. The coupon blood draws will be scheduled at the Outpatient Lab on the General Hospital campus in Eureka. The scheduled appointments will occur on four consecutive Saturdays, beginning Saturday, February 11.

According to Brian Olson, Health Fair Resource Coordinator, the annual fair is a great opportunity for attendees to learn more about health and wellness resources in our community.

“St. Joseph Health is excited to once again offer this event to our community,” said Olson. “In addition to a host of free health screenings, we will have a number of community organizations participating who will provide up-to-date information and resources on services offered in Humboldt County. Common topics include senior health, childbirthing support, health insurance, medication reconciliation, nutrition education, CalFresh outreach and more!”

According to Olson, the coupons for reduced cost blood screenings are more convenient and eliminate long lines and waiting times for the public.

“Providing coupons for reduced cost blood draws means no fasting is required at the event,” said Olson. “You can simply schedule your blood work at your convenience.”
