Community health fair in OP offers free services, information

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

(Sept. 28, 2012) Atlantic General Hospital’s Healthy Happenings Program and Peninsula Regional Medical Center are collaborating with the Ocean Pines Association’s Communications Advisory Committee to offer a Health Fair to the community. The event will be held Saturday, Oct. 6, from 8 a.m. to noon, in the Ocean Pines Community Center at 235 Ocean Parkway.

Atlantic General Hospital will provide various health-related screenings, including cholesterol, hearing, foot checks and bone density heel exams. Others include diabetes, stroke assessment, respiratory, with Dermascan and Carotid being the new screenings added to this year’s free community health fair. The PRMC mobile health van will also be on site performing blood pressure and stroke risk assessment as well as pulse oximetry. Other departments include the Wound Centers from both hospitals plus many others.

Information on other health and personal safety topics will also be available including Medicare updates. For the first time, there will be community health related vendors from the area doing additional screenings and education.

For more information, call Dawn Denton at the Community Education office at AGH at 410-641-9268 or for vending space call the Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department at 410-641-7052.
