Blood Drive and Community Health Fair

Give the gift that keeps on living. Give blood.

The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., will host its annual Dr. Charles R. Drew Blood Drive and Community Health Fair on Saturday, February 21, 2015 from 10am – 3pm at the Southeast YMCA, 2190 Jet Wing Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80916.  The Health Fair will include blood donations, free health screenings, free services for children, women, men, and seniors; free wellness instruction and community health services information.

Mothers & Dads will want to have their children receive preventative routine exams given by the professionals from Peak Vista, the owners of the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. Parents can ensure their car seats are installed correctly and can also learn about preventing head injuries from Safe Kids Colorado. Each family member’s hearing can also be checked by Rocky Mountain SERTOMA.

Women can pick up the latest info on breast care, wellness practices and other preventative health measures from the ANGEL Network; Serve, Empower, Transform (SET); and the Open Bible Medical Center. Women can also talk over the latest in cancer research with the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Seniors and family members caring for seniors will be able to discuss the availability of local services with the Pikes Peak Area Agency on Aging, and the Alzheimer’s Association. Seniors will want to take advantage of the Functional Movement ScreenTM to assess their limb flexibility and to learn techniques for improving flexibility and preventing falls.

Fitness buffs – still sore from the last workout? Drop into the chair for a deep tissue massage from Heuser Chiropractic. Then visit the INBODY machine for an electronic body fat measurement to gauge your weight loss progress.

Patrons can begin the process of acquiring affordable health insurance, through Connect for Colorado, by visiting with the Pikes Peak Area Agency on Aging. Community health information will be provided by the Hepatitis C Connection, and the AIDS/HIV Awareness Team from Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church. As always blood pressure, cholesterol, hearing and sickle cell screenings will be available for everyone.

A single blood donation can save 3 lives! Reserve your Saturday blood donation time by calling 719-776-5714 and referring to the “Omega” blood drive; or by emailing carolannbooks@centura.org. Donors can also arrange a donation time at the downtown Penrose Hospital location on a weekday to suit their schedules. ID required. Minimum age for donors is 17 years plus parental permission. Unsure of donating? Get your questions answered by health professionals at 719-776-5714.

Donate blood. Gift life.
