County to offer health screenings for employees

September 21st, 2012 in News

Callaway County is offering a special service for its employees today.

From 10 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. the Callaway County Health Department is hosting a small health fair for employees enrolled in the county's self-funded benefits plan.

The event will include health screenings and vendors with booths to share information about their health-related services.

"We'll have a chiropractor, a farmer's market, we do immunizations, we have cholesterol screenings, glucose checks, we do BMI (body mass index), blood pressure checks, our insurance companies come and we'll have two or three farmers' market vendors," said Sharon Lynch, administrator of the Callaway County Health Department. "We do it just to support their health. It's very low-key; we're here to support them.

"We have a really good time, and we have, in past years, caught a few people in our screenings."
