The Rotary Club of Canton and Mercy Medical Center have partnered to bring very low-cost health screenings to the Canton area community. On Saturday, April 29, the Health Screen & Wellness Fair will take place from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. in Mercy Medical Center’s Mercy Hall Auditorium, 1320 Mercy Drive NW, Canton. Mercy Hall is located directly behind the hospital’s main parking garage.
For just $40, community members can purchase a basic panel of blood screenings, which include: CBC with differential, CMP, lipid profile and thyroid (TSH). This basic panel tests for cholesterol, anemia and kidney/liver function and provides over 30 results. In addition to the $40 basic panel, several optional screenings will also be offered, including:
- A1C Hemoglobin $15
- PSA $15
- Vitamin D 25-Hydroxy $48
A 12-hour fast is recommended for more accurate results. To register in advance, please call the Canton Rotary at 330-452-2882 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. Registration is also available online 24-hours a day, 7 days a week by visiting www.cantonrotary.org. Although registration is preferred, walk-in appointments are also welcome. Rotary Club of Canton will accept cash, check and credit card (VISA and MASTERCARD) for the above screenings.
In addition to the blood screenings, Mercy Medical Center is offering a FREE Wellness Fair with numerous booths offering additional FREE screenings and important health information on topics such as heart disease, stroke, weight management, smoking cessation and more.
