This year's BMH community health fair drew such a large crowd that volunteers had to open the event a little early. The annual event is the hospital's largest service project for the community each year. This time, a highlight was free flu virus vaccinations but for a small fee those attending could also have a battery of other blood screening lab work done. Tests included total cholesterol, HDL/LDL, triglycerides, blood glucose and, in a separate test, PSA screening for men. Free screening was available as well, along with several booths providing information on healthcare-related topics.
