Indianapolis, July 2, 2013 – A new name calls for a celebration, and this year the organizers of the Eskenazi Health Center Forest Manor Health Fair hope it also means good health for the entire community. Fair goers will enjoy fun activities while partaking in dozens of free health screenings and immunizations and visiting information booths at the summer event.
On Saturday, July 13, Wishard-Eskenazi Health will present the Eskenazi Health Center Forest Manor Health Fair at Eskenazi Health Center Forest Manor, 3840 N. Sherman Dr., in Indianapolis. The free health fair will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is open to the entire community. A team of health care professionals will be on hand to answer questions and administer free health screenings in a fun and family-friendly atmosphere.
“This event provides a great opportunity to showcase our site and also introduce people to our new name as Wishard transitions to Eskenazi Health,” said Dr. Broderick Rhyant, a physician at Eskenazi Health Center Forest Manor. “By providing free health screenings and helpful advice from medical experts, the eastside community will have a chance to learn healthy living tips in a fun and friendly environment.”
Health checks provided during the fair will include blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, BMI, depression, dental, vision, asthma, hearing and more. In addition, free immunizations will be provided for both adults and children who bring a copy of their shot records. Participants will also have the chance to visit a wide variety of informational booths on topics such as nutrition, health insurance, community resources, WIC and more.
In addition to the numerous health screenings and informational booths, there will also be fun activities available for the entire family. Door prizes and giveaways will be announced throughout the event.
Eskenazi Health Center Forest Manor, which is located at the northwest corner of Sherman Drive and 38th Street, provides a medical home for families in the areas of internal and family medicine, pediatrics, adolescent care, dental care, mental health and social services.
