University Hospital's Grovetown Medical Center is holding a health fair and open house to celebrate its new facility. This free event includes facility tours, a limited number of plaque scans and health screenings for cholesterol and blood sugar. Plaque scans are on a first come, first serve basis. Plaque scans check the carotid artery for early signs of heart disease. If you have had a heart attack or stent placed, or you already know you have signs of heart disease, you are not an ideal candidate for this screening.
If you plan to have lab work done or your blood sugar checked, please fast for at least eight hours for the most accurate results. This event is free and open to the public.
