HAXTUN HEALTH PLANS HEALTH FAIR

Haxtun Health hosts their annual Health Fair on Saturday June 4th, 2022

The Health Fair will be from 7:00 AM – 12:00 PM at the Haxtun Community Center located at 125 E Wilson in Haxtun Colorado.  Pre-registration can be done online, prior to the event at HaxtunHealth.org.  Participants can also register in person the day of the fair.   Upon registration, participants have the option to choose which health screenings they would like.  Payments for lab tests will be taken the day of the fair in the form of cash, check, or credit card.   Lab draws will be performed by highly trained staff at the Haxtun Community Center the day of the fair.  Results are then mailed to participants the following week.  Participants can take their results to their preferred provider for questions and review.  For more information, contact Haxtun Health at 970-774-6123.

“Haxtun Health recognizes the reliance the community has on the annual Health Fair to get annual screenings at an affordable price.  We have built these packages based on previous years health fairs.  Participants will find the package prices are comparable, if not better, than other health fairs around”, stated Julia Biesemeier, CCRO at Haxtun Health.   The Haxtun Health Fair also offers additional health screenings at no cost to participants.  This year’s additional FREE Health Screenings include Balance Checks, Skin Checks, Medication Reviews, Blood Pressure and Pulse Ox Levels, and a nutrition station focusing on Body Weight, BMI and a Healthy Diet.

Available Health Screen Packages:

This year, Haxtun Health is offering FOUR affordable lab draw packages for participants to choose from.  Health care professionals are on-hand to offer assistance and advice to participants to decide which package is appropriate for them.

About the Available Tests
  • Blood Chemistry:  This screening includes and CMP and Lipid Panel.  It provides information on blood glucose, cholesterol, electrolytes, liver, kidneys, and thyroid.  The Lipid portion measures fats and fatty substances used as a source of energy in the body, including cholesterol, triglycerides, high and low density lipoprotein (HDL and LDL).  It can help you and your healthcare provider monitor and identify health issues like diabetes and heart disease.
  • Complete Blood Count: This screening measures several components and is used to evaluate your overall health and detect a wide range of disorders, including anemia, infection and leukemia.
  • Hemoglobin A1C Diabetes Screening: This screening measures your average blood sugar control for the past 2 to 3 months, and screens for Type 2 diabetes/prediabetes or used to follow existing diabetes treatment.
  • Vitamin D: Provides baseline Vitamin D levels, which is important to bone health and may affect other vital body functions.
  • Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA): A popular screening with men, this measures a protein produced by the prostate gland. After discussion with your healthcare provider, this screening may be recommended for individuals age 69 or younger, or those with a family history of prostate cancer.
  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH): A popular screening with women, this test is a screen for overall thyroid function

To best prepare for a blood draw, Haxtun Health recommends to not eat or drink anything, except water after midnight the night prior to lab work.  Drink plenty of water and continue to take prescription medications. People with diabetes should not fast. Check with your health care provider for specific recommendations.
