Health Fair returns June 25


After being canceled and held virtually during the pandemic era, the Health Fair will return to the Kerr McGee Center on Saturday, June 25, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Residents can take advantage of low-cost health screenings, free provider talks, a senior care health panel, health and wellness vendors, children’s activities and more.

“Being able to provide an event that is focused on health and well-being is very much needed after the last few years,” said Tera Moorehead, director of outreach. “Many people have been less focused on their health due to other demands taking their time, energy and attention. This event helps to remind the community that taking time for their health is important, no matter their age or where they are starting from.”

One of the most popular offerings of the health fair are the $35 blood panel screenings, which has more than 20 different tests from cholesterol (full lipid panel), thyroid, glucose, iron, potassium and so much more.

“This is a huge benefit for anyone wanting to know their numbers,” said Moorehead. “The results go straight to the individual and they can use it to share with their provider, as well as to be proactive about their health. Knowing what your numbers are early on can help you make any changes that may be needed. Comparing these results year after year is a great way to keep an eye on your health.”

Other screenings, also $35 each, are the ovarian cancer detection for women and prostate cancer detection for men. All tests are done through blood draw.

New to this year’s Health Fair is a children’s obstacle course, presented by 760 Fitness. RRH will be offering other kid-friendly games and activities throughout the day. In addition to the other scheduled provider talks by Dr. Loh-Doyle and Dr. Chaabo, a Senior Care Connections panel will give older residents a primer on how to manage their health with the help of local resources.

More than 30 other health and wellness experts will be sharing information about the services and support they provide to to the community.

Moorehead said that both our residents and vendors have expressed excitement at being able to return to an in-person environment.

“It’s also exciting to see how much Ridgecrest has to offer and how many people are passionate about providing services to better the health of the community.”
