Blood Screening and Health Fair Held in Buckhannon


The Buckhannon Rotary Club and Saint Joseph's Hospital held its Spring Blood Screening and Health Fair on Saturday.

Health professionals gave free screenings and information designed to keep people healthy.

For only $35, people could get a basic blood profile test done.

Organizers said people wanted to start Spring with health on their minds.

"I think we need to take charge of our health so I think that's a good way to start, and these screenings are something that you can take back to your physician, and discuss the findings as well as all the other things," said Lisa Warton of Saint Joseph's Hospital.

Optional testing for colon cancer, and thyroid screening were also available.
