Health fair tomorrow at Tyrone Colonial Courtyard

Tyrone Colonial Courtyard, in conjunction with Tyrone Hospital, is scheduled to host a health fair tomorrow, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“The purpose of the fair is to give the community an opportunity to free health screening, to make them more aware,” said community relations coordinator, Rose Long. “It gives the community an opportunity to become aware of our facility and what we have to offer and demonstrate good health care.”
The scheduled events include free health screenings as well as door prizes and refreshments. The general public is invited to attend, and Long said the health fair is going to become an annual event.
Numerous vendors will be offering screenings and other beneficial information. The Tyrone Hospital has three such screenings scheduled which include: cholesterol testing for $3, physical therapy with balance testing, and a nutrition screening at 10:30 a.m. to demonstrate healthy, low-fat, low cholesterol meals.
