Health screenings such as cholesterol, bone density, glucose and vision
can be costly for some people.
However, with the help of several staff members and volunteers, Mission
Regional Medical Center along with other health care providers will offer
these screenings for free to visitors at the 14th Annual Mission Community
The fair, scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon Sunday, January 18th, will be held
at the Sharyland High School Gym, 1106 North Shary Road, Mission, Texas.
“Last year we welcomed approximately 1200 people to the health fair,”
said Nick Espinosa, Director of Marketing, Mission Regional Medical Center.
“This year, we may see more people taking advantage of these free
health screenings because of the slow economy, “ added Espinosa.
All these free screenings have a value of about $600.
