Early identification and control of certain types of personal health conditions can significantly improve the health and longevity of individuals who participate in the health fair. By offering a wide variety of testing to assist your physician in your health care, important concerns such as heart attack, stroke, liver and kidney disease, anemia, and diabetes are screened for in the general health fair.

Fast for a minimum of 12 hours prior to the time blood is drawn. This means no food or drinks except for water. Do not smoke the morning of the health fair.

You will be asked at the time of registration who your doctor is. They will then draw your blood and transport it back to the lab on Main Street. You can receive the results with a donation of a canned food item or a $1 donation.

Light refreshments will be served after the blood draw. The fair is sponsored by The Rotary Club of West Lafayette and assisted by the Coshocton Laboratory International, 660 Main St., Coshocton, and the Coshocton County EMS.
