A variety of blood screenings will be available at a reduced cost including a Comprehensive Blood Analysis with Lipid Profile for $32 and TSH (Thyroid) Screening for $25. (Participants must fast, water only, for at least 10 hours prior to the Comprehensive Blood Analysis test.)
Flu shots will also be offered for $25 each by the Jackson County Health Department. There will also be a drawing each hour for a free flu shot.
Also at this year’s event, the Jackson County Drug-Free Council is sponsoring a drug drop off for unused over-the-counter and prescription medications in an effort to raise awareness of abuse.
Spirit Girls’ Morning Out is organized and hosted by Schneck Foundation and Schneck Medical Center, a member of the Spirit of Women Hospital Network. More than 65 Spirit of Women hospitals will also host a Spirit Girl’s event this fall – creating a national movement in women’s health.
