OSMOND — Osmond General Hospital hosted the annual community health fair on Monday and Tuesday, June 12 and 13. The theme for this year’s health fair was “Let Your Health Be a Home Run,” and there were several baseball-themed decorations throughout the area where the health fair was held. Health screenings included lab draws for thyroid testing, cardiac disease risk factor, cholesterol and blood cell count, as well as bone density and blood pressure checks and skin exams.
A bake sale was held, with proceeds going to the Osmond General Hospital residents’ activity fund. The hospital wellness committee also held a raffle for themed baskets for their ongoing “Comfort Care Kit” program where kits could be given to individuals diagnosed with cancer.
