Grand Strand Regional hosts annual health fair Feb. 1

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Grand Strand Regional Medical Center will sponsor its 33rd annual health fair on Saturday, February 1 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at HealthFinders in the Coastal Grand Mall.

Over 40 medical and healthcare exhibitors will be available for information and screenings. Grand Strand Regional will offer a Panel 30 blood profile for $30. The profile includes thyroid, complete cholesterol, total iron, sodium, glucose, calcium, magnesium, total protein, protein, potassium and more. Fasting for 12 hours before the screening is required for accurate results; diabetics should bring a snack to eat immediately after the blood draw. Free screenings at the health fair include: blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation, foot, spine and vision.

"Not only is this an opportunity to get a baseline or check on your health each year, it is cost effective," said Joan Carroza, marketing director. "An individual's health is a priority and results of the free screenings and the lipid profile may help people decide whether to seek additional care."

"The health fair also is an opportunity for residents and visitors to meet some of the newer physicians who have joined the medical staff or learn more about existing physician practices," Carroza added.

Numerous physician practices associated with Grand Strand Regional plan to participate in the health fair including family practice, neurology/neurosurgery, senior health, podiatry, oncology, ear, nose, and throat, dermatology, cardiovascular and surgery. Grand Strand Regional Medical Center will have representatives discussing living wills, diabetes, general hospital information, senior health, volunteers, surgery, stroke, wound care and more.

Pre-registration is not required nor are appointments available for the blood draw. Call 839-9933 for more information.
