(Lamar, CO)  The region’s most affordable health fair returns with the 2014 Community Wellness Expo on April 16th & 17th.  The Community Wellness Expo is sponsored by High Plains Community Health Center, Frontier Bank and the Lamar Parks and Recreation Department.  A $30 fasting blood work panel includes:  Lipids (cholesterol); A1C (diabetes); CBC (infection & anemia); TSH (thyroid); Uric Acid (gout); LDH & CPK (heart enzymes); Po4 (bone health); and, CMP (kidney, liver function, glucose, and electrolytes).  The PSA (prostate) test is also available for an additional $11.

The Community Wellness Expo will be held at the Lamar Community Building from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.  There will be over 40 exhibits providing information on how to improve you and your family’s overall health.  Many of the participating organizations will have give-a-ways and drawings at their health exhibits, including a grand prize drawing courtesy of Frontier Bank.
