Conrad is serving up one big event after another this week.
Tuesday will see the third annual National Night Out and right on its heels, on Aug. 3, is the Pondera Medical Center Health Fair and Sports Physical clinic.
There is no charge to attend the Health Fair, this is a free event.
The Health Fair takes place from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 416 S. Kansas in Conrad.
A major health feature to the Health Fair will again be the blood screening and PSA tests. You can have this done for $40 each, (panel and PSA) for a cost of $80. The price remains unchanged from last year and is the bargain of a lifetime.
There is no better health deal in town. You can’t afford not to take advantage of this yearly special which normally would cost you hundreds of dollars.
If you take the lab tests, you are asked not to eat until after you have your blood drawn.
The PMC will not bill your insurance company, or you, this needs to be paid for at the time you sign in for the tests. If needed, they will give you the necessary information you need for your insurance company.
There will be door prizes, beverages and healthy snacks for you.
You can also get your blood sugar and blood pressure checked at no cost.
A special highlight of the Fair will be sports physicals done by Lanae Williams and David Arends PA-C. An appointment is not necessary and the cost is only $25.
The PCSO will be on hand to collect unused prescription drugs which is fast becoming the drug(s) of choice.
If you have any prescription drugs that are outdated or not being taken, bring them to the Fair for the PCSO to dispose of.
Other entities on hand will include the American Red Cross, the North Central Montana AHEC, Health Montana Kid, and the Hi-Line Help for Abused Spouses.
In addition there will be heel bone density scans and blood pressure tests available.
Also, there will be lots of healthy snack and door prizes to be given away.
We’ll see you at the Health Fair.
