The Colorado Plains Medical Center (CPMC) hosted its 19th Annual Community Health Fair on Saturday, April 9 from 7-11 a.m. at Fort Morgan Fieldhouse. Because health includes physical, mental and social well-being, 55 different stands were able to participate in the fair, which this year had the theme “Home Run for Health”.

Over 450 community members attended the morning event, visiting booths offering various screenings and free health services and getting more information on community resources and upcoming events. Some screenings and free services included consultations and chiropractic adjustments, CPR training, smoothie samples, screenings of skin cancer and training for the installation of car seats for babies.

The CPMC laboratory had also set up a station to provide blood tests at low cost. Blood tests they could perform included: CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Profile) with lipid TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), PSA (Prostate Screening Antigen), A1C (Diabetes Screening). No appointment or insurance was required to participate.

During the week before the show of health, blood samples were taken early in the WACC from 6 am to 8 pm. People who participated in these early samples blood could review their results with a professional at the health fair. Throughout the week, a total of 478 people took advantage of the blood draw services.

Parked outside the Fieldhouse was one of the Northeastern Colorado Health Department’s mobile vaccination clinics, which provided free COVID-19 and flu shots.

Because the event was organized by CMPC, there were numerous interdepartmental kiosks included in the fair. CMPC is not just a hospital with an emergency room, but it also houses specialized services for a variety of needs. These departments included: CMPC Radiology / Bone density / Imaging, CPMC Specialty Clinic, CPMC OB / Labor / Delivery, CPMC Infection Control, CPMC Human Resources, CPMC Cardiac / Hands-on CPR CPMC Dietary, CPMC Pharmacy CPMC Home Health, CPMC booth registration / admission, CPMC Medical Records, CPMC Surgery / Ortho, CPMC Ask a Doc / CP Medical Group, CPMC 5210 / Healthy Kids, CPMC Rehab / Physical Therapy, Wound Care CMPC, CMPC Lab.
