In 2014, the Health Center did 357 weight and BMI checks, 8 Cholesterol Screenings, 37 Blood Pressure Checks, & 5 Blood Sugar Checks. These are offered for a minimal charge & blood pressure checks are free. 34 Nutritional Counseling sessions were done.
A Health Fair was done, in collaboration with the Doe Run Company, that offered over 25 vendors, door prizes, flu shots, discounted lab work, Blood Pressure/Blood Sugar checks, etc. A total of 114 people took advantage of this great opportunity. Plans are in the making for another Fair in 2016 for late summer for southern Reynolds & September for Northern Reynolds.
