(May, 2015)

Take advantage of more than 25 free health screenings at the 32nd Annual Southland Health Fair Saturday, June 6, at the Matteson Community Center in Matteson. This year’s event features brand-new Saturday hours and a new location, but the fair will be just as comprehensive as it’s always been.

Sponsored by Ingalls Health System, the Rotary Club of Homewood and Homewood Rotary Foundation, the 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. fair features an array of free screenings, including total cholesterol; 12-lead EKGs (for people over 30 years); cancer screenings for skin, colon, oral and breast; arthritis, back, neck and joint pain screenings; allergy tests; vision exams; hearing screenings; mini massages; and more.

A $10 lipid profile (which requires a 12-hour fast) also will be offered, along with many other discounted blood tests, including prostate, thyroid and glucose screenings.

Register ahead at Ingalls.org/HealthFair. All are welcome; there are no residency restrictions.

No appointment is needed, but for more information, call Ingalls Care Connection at 708.915.CARE (2273). The Matteson Community Center is located at 20642 Matteson Ave. in Matteson (one block west of Cicero Avenue).
