    Event Description:

    In celebration of National Hospital Week, Opelousas General Health System will host the 11th Annual Community Health Fair on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at OGHS South Campus, located at 3983 I-49 S. Service Road in Opelousas. It will be held from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. This year, we will be offering low-cost health screenings including PSA and A1C for $15.00 each.

    Please note that we are actively working on scheduling vendors for this year.  Below are the screenings that were offered in 2017. 

    Area health care businesses throughout St. Landry and beyond will be joining OGHS in offering free screenings, tests and other medical information to the community. Featured screenings include: cholesterol, glucose, lung function, blood pressure, vision including glaucoma, balance, hearing, body composition, sleep disorders, grip strength, cardiovascular, depression, metabolic age and more.

     Both the Louisiana State Fire Marshall and the Opelousas Fire Department will have educational demonstrations on fire safety. You will also have the opportunity to apply for a free smoke detector. The Opelousas Fire Department will have their smoke house that teaches children what to do in case of a fire in their home.  The Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries will provide information on life jacket safety, the Louisiana Senior Medicare Patrol will be on site and free smoking cessation enrollment will be offered.

    Visit the Pink Booth to find out if you qualify for a free mammogram and pick up breast health educational material.  Free body mass index readings and counseling will be available along with nutrition, wellness and other health information.

    Several health professionals will be on site to analyze results and answer questions regarding the screenings.

    There will also be a Kid's Corner, with activities and educational sessions for children sponsored by the Youth Leadership Council of the Opelousas/St. Landry Chamber of Commerce.  Door prizes will be given away throughout the morning.  Bring the entire family, as there will be something for everyone.  For more information call Carol Duplechain at 948-5157.
