KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The 20th annual Living Well Community Health Fair will be coming to Klamath Falls on Saturday, March 3. The event is hosted by Sky Lakes Medical Center and will be held at the Klamath County Fairgrounds.

The health fair will feature free wellness screenings, including cholesterol, blood glucose, lung function, blood pressure, and body mass index readings. Sky Lakes Medical Center recommends fasting for 8-12 hours before a cholesterol or blood glucose screening for accurate results. Physicians will be there to explain the results for free.

Another highlight of the fair will be a walk-through model of the human colon.  March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, according to Sky Lakes Public Information Officer Tom Hottman. The display aims to teach attendees more about the disease and how screening can catch potential problems. The American Cancer Society says that more than 135,000 people in the US will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer this year.

At 9 a.m., surgeons from the Center for Total Joint and Spine Care will present on their subjects of expertise—joints, joint pain, and joint health.

The health fair will also feature free displays from Sky Lakes departments, community partners, and activities for children ages 3-13.

WHEN:   8 a.m. - 2 p.m. Saturday, March 3, 2018
WHERE:   Exhibit Hall 1 at the Klamath County Fair Grounds, 3531 S Sixth St.
