Several new free screenings will be offered at St. John’s Annual
Community Health Fair, held on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 9 am to noon
at Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation Center.
“The free screenings that are offered at the Health Fair are part
of an ongoing effort to address access to care in our community,”
said Julia Heemstra, director of wellness at St. John’s Medical
Center. “We are particularly excited about the new screenings we
are offering this year—for mental health, concussion, and hernia.”
Additional screenings available at the Health Fair include blood pressure,
injury assessment, skin cancer checks, atrial fibrillation, cognitive
memory, vision, diabetes, prostate, and more. Spanish language interpreters

in this service must schedule their blood draw prior to May 2 in order
to have their results read at the Health Fair. To schedule an appointment,
