All-Day Health Fair June 23 at Torch Lake EMS

Posted on June 19, 2010


On Wednesday, June 23 a dozen providers are coming to the Health Fair sponsored by the Torch Lake Township EMS.  This is a great opportunity for you to check up on Your Tax Dollars at Work.  Examine the nice ambulances you paid for.  Reassure yourself that they are ready to fetch you in case of Unfortunate Occurrences.  Curious about the red helicopter that ferries emergencies to Munson?  Talk to the folks from Northflight. 

Have your blood glucose or blood pressure checked–for free!  Find out about services that help you stay in your home when you’re sick or just slowing down.  Worried about your cholesterol?  Charlevoix Area Hospital will have a team there to do a screening ($12 fee).  Thinking about increasing the Township population?  Blessing the Womb Midwife will be there.  Facing difficult end-of-life choices?  Hospice of Northern Michigan will be there, too.

Learn about sleep apnea and Alzheimer’s and counseling and chiropractic.  Be a good neighbor–roll up your sleeve at the Red Cross Blood Drive.  Check out the stuff you can borrow from the Loan Closet.  Meet the great team of EMTs who staff your township ambulance service.   I don’t see how you can go wrong.

You don’t have to live in the Township to attend the Health Fair.  Everybody is welcome.  Be well.
