High blood pressure, family history, smoking, excess weight. All may have an impact on our future health. Some things we sim- ply can't control, but with education and proper health care, we can make wise choices leading to a healthy and happy health care future. The Shetek Hospitals are committed to providing the tools needed to make those sound health care decisions! A commitment to provid- ing quality health care for all people in our service area... that's the impetus behind the second annual Shetek Hospital's Health and Fitness Fair. The three Shetek Hospital's; Murray County Memorial Hospital and Clinic, Tracy Area Medical Services and Westbrook Health Center invite area residents, and all persons interested in taking advantage of this health cen- tered event, to mark their calendars and plan to be there July 17, 2004 between 7:30 and noon. A central location, the End-O-Line Park in Currie, MN provides easy access to this health care opportunity surrounded by the scenic beauty of this outdoor setting. Persons attending the event can visit more than forty health related informa- tion booths, receive free or low cost screenings, make a life saving blood donation, have a delicious pancake breakfast, or participate in a 5-K 'Fun Run' and all of this conveniently close to home. 2004 Health & Fitness Fair Screenings offered at a Minimal charge will include: Carotid Artery/Stroke Screening: Valuable for per- sons who are at risk for stroke due to family history, those who suffer with high blood pressure, elevated cho- lesterol levels and diabetes and those that smoke. Abdominal Aortic/ Aneurysm " Screening: Valuable for persons who are at risk for this condition due to family history of aneurysm, smokers, male caucasians, or those who suf- fer from atheroschlorosis (Peripheral Vascular Disease, hardening of the arteries) Bone Mineral Density (BMD): Is valuable to deter- mine the presence or possi- bility of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis, loss of bone mass, occurs more often in older post-menopausal women, but can also be found in men. BMD meas- ures the amount of calcium in a specific region of the bones. From this informa- tion, an estimation of the strength of your bones can be made. BMD measured through Ultrasound will indicate if your bone density is low and if further investi- gation and treatment is indi- cated. Risk factors that may indicate a possibility of low BMD include family history, diet low in calcium, smoking and excessive use of alcohol, taking cortisteroids for an extended period of time and persons that are very thin. These screenings require pre-registration and you are encouraged to call 1-800- 515-6544 ext. 4122 to make your appointment as soon as possible. Laboratory Blood Tests available at the Health & Fitness Fair site will include: Full Chemistry Blood Panel (complete metabolic panel) and Lipid Panel (Cholesterol). Some of the information gained from the Full Chemistry Blood Panel may indicate conditions of the kidneys or liver, malnu- trition, or bone disease. Also indicated may be low blood glucose levels, and damage, trauma or disease involving the liver, heart or muscle. Fourteen separate blood tests are included in this panel. Lipid Panel (good and bad cholesterol) determines cholesterol good and bad cholesterol levels and may indicate coronary risk fac- tors. Triglycerides are also included in this test. 12- hour fast is required to obtain meaningful results. (Protein Sensitive Antigen) test. May help to determine early prostate cancer. This blood test is recommended on an annual basis for men over the age of 50. For men with a high risk factor or family history, PSA screening should begin at age 40. More than 10 Free screenings including lung screens and screening for Peripheral Arterial Disease (determining blood pressure in extremities) will be avail- able from 7:30 a.m. through noon at the Health Fair site.
