Hospital, chamber team up to offer blood analysis screenings

From BOWLING GREEN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Wood County Hospital and the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce will host their 14th Annual Blood Analysis Program on Saturday, April 28 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., at the Wood County Hospital.

This comprehensive blood analysis screening is for multiple health risk indicators including but not limited to kidney function, electrolytes, liver function and lipid profile and requires a 10 hour fast. Additional available tests are PSA for men and TSH (thyroid) for men and women. Cost of the program is $50 for BG Chamber Investors and $60 for Non-Investors, with $25 each for the additional tests. Blood pressure checks are also offered.

The results of this fasting blood test should be used as a guide to determine your current health status and to make positive changes in diet, exercise or lifestyle to enhance your well-being. The screening should not take the place of routine physicals. Although normal ranges are listed, only you and your physician can establish what is normal for you. A report providing all test results will be sent to the participant or his/her physician.

Proceeds from the event will go to support the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce and Wood County Hospital Foundation Scholarship Funds. The Wood County Hospital Foundation Scholarship is designated for full-time undergraduate students at BGSU. The scholarship is awarded annually to one student. The Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce Scholarship is a $2,000 award that is given annually to one Chamber-affiliated student for their study at BGSU.

Appointments are required. Starting now, you can call the Chamber office at (419) 353-7945 to schedule an appointment. Registration will be taken until April 13th, or until all spots are filled. Prepayment is required at time of registration by cash, check or credit card, and must be paid prior to event.
