24th annual Men’s Health Fair
Jakelia Jackson, certified lab assistant, draws blood for free health screenings at the 24th annual Men's Health Fair at the Dothan Civic Center. A record number of participants took advantage of free health screenings at this year's event. The event drew 885 participants. Of those, 500 had labs drawn, with 27 found to have elevated PSAs. Another 117 had high cholesterol and 92 had elevated glucose; 68 men had low testosterone and 18 had abnormal thyroid levels. Also, 604 pounds of food was collected for donation to the Wiregrass Area United Way Food Bank. Three physicians participated from Urological Associates, along with 12 ACOM students and 90 volunteers. Thank you to all who helped make this event possible!
