At WellStar, we believe prevention and early detection provide the best approach to maintaining health and avoiding disease. That’s why we provide health fairs, screenings and educational opportunities in a variety of settings to help improve the health and well-being of you and your family.
WellStar physicians and health teams are dedicated to keeping services delivered through community events at low cost or no cost to participants.
Join us for educational and interactive events held throughout our communities that provide basic preventive medicine, medical screening and education to the community. Some health fairs may have specific themes, such as heart health, diabetes or weight loss and fitness.
Well*Screen events provide convenient and affordable health screenings for early detection of problems relating to cholesterol, thyroid function, prostate health, diabetes and other medical conditions. Screening events are held throughout the year at various WellStar facilities, as well as on-site locations such as YMCAs, faith-based organizations and senior centers.
