9Health Fair planned for April 21 at PVMC

-A A +A

You can get a free blood pressure check and other health screenings at the 9Health Fair coming 7 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 21 at Platte Valley Medical Center, 1600 Prairie Center Parkway.

New this year are free rheumatoid arthritis screenings and a Total Wellness Zone, focusing on whole body health, with a free yoga class at 10 a.m.

In all, you can get 38 different health screenings, ranging lung function assessments to memory and stress tests. All are free or low cost – geared toward members of the community who might not be able to afford regular visits to a physician.

Peggy Jarret, event organizer, is celebrating her 20th anniversary planning the 9Health Fair at Platte Valley.
