Do something good for your body - and your peace of mind - and attend this Fridayís health fair sponsored by Glen Rose Medical Center with support from the LDL Foundation.

The fair runs from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Somervell County Expo. Free screenings will be offered for skin cancer, cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, hearing, vision and a lot more.

The medical center also will provide first-come, first-served ultrasound carotid artery, thyroid and bone density screenings.

School immunizations will be offered for a low fee determined by income. Those attending can get help applying for childrenís Medicaid. In addition, Carter Blood Care will take blood donations.

At past fairs people who were screened discovered they needed thyroid treatment, while others were referred to doctors for blocked carotid arteries, untreated high blood pressure, skin cancer anomalies and abnormal EKGs.

Donít guess when it comes to your health. Take care of it - and be kind to your wallet, too.
