This annual health fair serves to benefit health, wellness, safety and education opportunities for residents of central Montana. Annually, over 550 blood draws are taken to help assess for anemia, infection, leukemias, glucose, cholesterol, liver & kidney function, thyroid, and prostate for men. Customers can choose one or all of the screens to fit their needs. The fair also offers the opportunity for low-cost blood screens, all offered by CMMC.

The fair is held one day per year and the April 2013 fair featured 46 booths, 661 blood draws, and brought in 658 visitors!

Community collaboration helps make this annual health fair a great success each year. Planning, organizing, and hosting the event would not be possible without the support of the entire community. The health fair is an important component of the community to enhance health in Central Montana.

Everyone is invited to Central Montana Medical Center’s Annual Health Fair in Lewistown. There is free admission to view over 50 community business/organization’s booths that promote health and wellness.
