COLUMBUS – Columbus residents are tuning up for life thanks to a 13th annual event being held in Columbus.
Columbus Community Hospital Director of Occupational Health Services Danielle Frewing says the 13th Annual Tune-Up For Life Community Health Fair was held at the Columbus Wellness Center from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday. Attendees at the event got the opportunity to do a variety of different things to get their new year started off right.
“Well it’s the beginning of a year,” says Frewing, “a good idea just to start fresh, start with those baseline labs, baseline screenings. Again take that back to your doctor, learn more about your health. Like I had mentioned there are several specialists here, so if you are new to the area, or want to meet them, or have questions and you just don’t know where to start, this is a great way to start.”
Frewing said the various various labs and screenings at the event included wellness lab draw screenings, screenings with the Kidney Association, blood pressure screenings, vision and hearing screenings, and other additional screenings for free. The event was held in the gymnasium of the Columbus Wellness Center and despite the cold temperatures residents made a solid showing for the event.
