Cookeville Hospital To Host Health Fairs

Cookeville Regional Medical Center will be hosting several Health and Fitness fairs throughout this year -- including one later this month. The quarterly fairs will be on January 23, April 17, July 24 and October 16 from 7:00 am to 10:00 am. Hospital officials say the health fairs provide an opportunity for community members to participate in affordable screenings to keep health and wellness top of mind throughout the year. They are open to the public and provide screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol, Vitamin D level, and bone density, among other things. The fairs will be held in the Education Center located inside the East entrance of the hospital beside the emergency room. Registration is required to attend. You can call The Community Wellness Department for complete pricing, questions or to register. Their number is 783-2587.
