Health Fair and Teddy Bears

Health Fair and Teddy Bears

On Saturday, April 18, more than 300 people received 559 free health screenings provided at Saint Mary’s Hospital. The ninth annual Community Health and Wellness Fair is supported by the Saint Mary’s Hospital Foundation.

Ministry Medical Group Rhinelander, Ministry Saint Mary’s Hospital and local community members joined forces to provide 12 free clinical screenings, to check cholesterol levels, blood pressure, balance, throat, depression, body mass index (BMI), breast health, prostate health, hearing and vision.

There was even a draw for younger patients. Children received new teddy bears and had them examined at the teddy bear clinic booth.

“The mission of the Saint Mary's Hospital Foundation is to enhance healthcare services in Rhinelander and its surrounding communities and I believe offering 559 free screenings was a terrific benefit to those we serve,” says Jesse Bolder, director of Ministry Saint Mary’s Foundation.

In addition to the free screenings, the wellness component of the health fair showcased community partnerships. The Rhinelander Police Department collected 14 pounds of expired medications, the Community Blood Center hosted a blood drive, and food was collected for the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry. Health fair visitors also had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a distracted driving simulator, which demonstrated the dangers of inattentive driving.

More than 20 people created a My Ministry Health account, which allows patients to access their personal health information online. The secure and convenient website also allows viewing of lab results, accessing after-clinic visit summaries and hospital discharge instructions, the exchange of messages with a physician, submission of appointment requests, real-time alerts when new information is available and the ongoing management of health information for the whole family.
