The TWU Well Wednesday Community Health Fair will provide many services free of charge, including blood pressure check, HIV testing and vision screening. Lab screenings will be available by appointment at reduced cost. Blood profiles – which include a complete metabolic panel, a complete blood count (CBC) and lipid and thyroid profiles – are $55. Males over the age of 50 have the option of receiving a blood profile that includes a complete metabolic panel, CBC, lipid panel and PSA (prostate specific antigen) for $55. Payment by cash or check will be accepted. Fasting for up to eight hours prior to the screening is recommended. To schedule an appointment for these screenings, call (940) 898-3833.

Door prizes will be raffled off at the end of the event.

The health fair will feature information from more than 40 vendors including Be the Match Registry, Birth Boot Camp, the Denton County Health Department, Living Well Senior Care, Paws Across Texas and more. TWU components providing information include the TWU Counseling Center, TWU Department of Public Safety, TWU Fit and Rec, TWU Libraries, Institute for Women’s Health, Exercise and Sports Nutrition Clinic, and the TWU Student Health Services, which also sponsors the health fair.

“The health fair will combine health and wellness information with fun, interactive activities,” said Sonia Redwine, assistant director of health promotion at TWU. “We hope this event will help our TWU community and Denton community members identify valuable health resources and services available to them and inspire them to adopt healthy lifestyle choices.”
