Sylvan Grove Hospital Health Fair

Each year, Sylvan Grove Hospital provides a local health fair to the public, offering screenings for a variety of common health issues and wellness checks covering everything from blood pressure, cholesterol, breathing and respiration, prostate cancer screening and much more. Because this health fair has grown so much over the years, it will be held this year at the Butts County Administration Building. The auditorium, lobby and gallery between the two wings of the building will be designated for the health fair which will be held on Thursday, September 23, 2010 from 7:30 AM until 12:00 Noon. There is no cost to participants and it is an excellent opportunity to have your health and wellness checked by professional nurses, technicans and physicians. If problems are indicated, you will be counseled about where to seek further medical attention or lifestyle changes that can help improve your overall physical health. Don’t miss this opportunity to get a checkup and it is a known fact that lives have been saved in the past because of these health fairs. For more information, contact Sylvan Grove Hospital at...
