Health fair brings preventative care to those with limited income, no insurance

Mammograms, blood pressure tests, diabetes screenings among services offered

A collaborative effort brings preventative health care to people in our community.

Mammograms, blood pressure checks and diabetes screenings were just a few of the services outside of the La Crosse County Health building Wednesday, some of those for no cost.

The Health Matters Health Fair was put on by Mayo Clinic Health System, Health Traditions and the La Crosse County Health Department.

They were hoping to reach out to people with limited income and no insurance.

“It’s a great opportunity to show how important the health is to our community members,” said Health Traditions’ Yolanda Grimmius.

The groups are looking to offer this again some time in the future.
