MISSION, Texas – The Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) in collaboration with Mission Regional Medical Center (MRMC), is gearing up for the upcoming 20th Annual Mission Community Health Fair at the Sharyland High School Gymnasium. The event is scheduled for Sunday, January 18, 2015, from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

This is the 20th consecutive year that our organization has participated in this event. “As a community-based, non-profit hospital, MRMC places great value on the health of those we serve,” said Evelyn Saenz, Marketing Coordinator for Mission Regional Medical Center. “We want all the community to take advantage of this great opportunity to get a free check-up on their health.”

Free screenings at the Health Fair include: bone density (osteoporosis), flu vaccines, pulmonary function tests and much more. The laboratory team from Mission Regional Medical Center will be providing master blood tests to the first 500 people. The screening includes: complete blood count (anemia), comprehensive metabolic panel (diabetes, liver and kidney function), lipid profile (total cholesterol HDL and LDL), also free PSA (prostate cancer screening) for males over 40 and free TSH (Thyroid function screening) for females. These FREE screenings are valued at approximately $1,000.

A 12 hour food fast is recommended for those wishing to have blood screening tests performed.

“We are very excited to host this community health fair here in Mission,” said Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, George Myers. “It provides a great opportunity for the public to examine their own health while at the same time, learning how to help others become healthy as well.”
