Public Invited to 'BONEtastic' Health Fair

Saturday, Feb. 2, is going to be a “BONEtastic Saturday” at the Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus, 2000 Dan Proctor Drive, St. Marys, and everyone is invited to attend. This free event, set to take place from 10 a.m. until noon, will offer the chance to participate in a variety of free health screenings, a Brown Bag Medication Review, and an opportunity to learn more about bone health and related services provided by the Health System.

Attendees can take advantage of several free health screenings, including bone density, balance, blood pressure and blood sugar, and prescription and over-the-counter medication reviews. Medical experts, including members of the Orthopaedic & Spine Center medical team, will be on hand with valuable health education information, and to answer questions anyone might have about orthopaedic and spine related services and treatment options.

During the Brown Bag Medication Review, attendees bring all of their prescription medicines, over-the-counter medications, herbal supplements and vitamins in a brown paper bag to learn about their common uses, side-effects and potentially harmful interactions with other medications. A pharmacist or pharmacy student will be on hand to provide a free one-on-one consultation, prepare a current list of medications, and answer questions about the safe and effective use of medications.
