2020 HEALTH FAIRS

Take care of your health! 

 

Due to the current Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we will be pushing back the dates of our June Health Fair. The new dates are not yet confirmed. We will update this page with more information as it becomes available. For now, thank you for your patience and stay healthy.


Lab Tests Offered - PLEASE NOTE OUR PRICING HAS CHANGED

New this year, CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS ARE ACCEPTED! This includes debit cards, HSA and Flex cards. Payment by check or cash will also be accepted. We have an ATM onsite at Aspen Valley Hospital for your convenience if you choose to pay by cash. We do NOT have an ATM available onsite at the El Jebel Community Center. Please check with your insurance benefits to understand if your plan covers health fair screenings. AVH will not submit to your insurance.
  • HealthScreen w/CBC Profile - $70.00
The HealthScreen w/ CBC Profile tests multiple metabolic functions: blood sugar; lipids, including cholesterol/triglycerides/HDL/LDL; kidney and liver function; iron studies, thyroid stimulating hormone, complete blood count and more. Fasting for at least 12 hours with the exception of water is recommended. Diabetics should contact their physician for instructions.
 
  • Hemoglobin A1c & EAG - $35.00
Hemoglobin A1C is a test that measures the amount of glycated hemoglobin in your blood. Glycated hemoglobin is a substance in red blood cells that is formed when blood sugar (glucose) attaches to hemoglobin. Hemoglobin A1C monitors a person’s glucose control over the last 2-3 months.
 
  • hsCardio CRP - $35.00
hsCardio CRP may be helpful in assessing risk of developing heart disease, cardiovascular disease, or other processes involving inflammation.
  • PSA, Total - $40.00
PSA testing may be beneficial in detecting abnormal conditions of the prostate gland. Men who have increased risk for prostate cancer should start getting tested earlier (such as American men of African descent and men with a family history of the disease) usually at age 40 or 45. Elevated PSA levels may indicate a non-cancerous swelling of the prostate, an infection of the prostate, and in some cases, prostate cancer.
  • Vitamin D - $45.00
25-hydroxyvitamin D is used to determine if bone weakness, bone malformation, or abnormal metabolism of calcium (reflected by abnormal calcium, phosphorus, PTH) is occurring as a result of a deficiency or excess of vitamin D.
  • Colorectal cancer screen - $30.00

The fecal immunochemical test (FIT) screening method for hemoglobin in stool is the new standard of care for the early detection of blood which may be associated with colorectal cancer. It is changing the outcome of colorectal cancer.

The American Cancer Society recommends screening for colon cancer between the ages of 45 and 75, while the U.S. Multi-Society Task Force (MSTF) on Colorectal Cancer and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommend screening starting at age 50. Screening annually is usually recommended if an occult blood test is used.

This is a take-home kit.  Testing is not completed at the health fair.  The test does not require a special diet before collection and does not react with non-human hemoglobin, vitamins or drugs.
