Medical volunteers needed for health fair

June 18, 2010 Updated Apr 8, 2008 at 1:10 PM EST

Focus on Health is an annual free health fair to improve the health of Fort Wayne’s residents.

Indiana’s NewsCenter is partnering with the Midwest Alliance for Health Education to conduct free medical screenings throughout our community from April 15th through April 26th. The Focus on Health project in Fort Wayne is made possible by donations from Parkview Hospital, St. Joseph Hospital, Wells Fargo, PHP, Time Corner's Lions Club, International Truck, Murphy Associates, Equity Investment Group and Barrett & McNangy.

Medical professionals are needed though to help staff the screening sites. If you are an RN, LPN, EMT, Para-medic or skilled at drawing blood, you can help us get healthy by volunteering a few hours of your time!

To volunteer, call: 260-481-4864.

The screenings are open to the public and will focus on such things as blood pressure, vision, height and weight, and body mass. For a small fee, you can have a blood chemistry workup done. And at selected locations, free bone density, audiology, podiatry and oral cancer tests will be available.
