Women's Health Expo coming to KRMC
KINGMAN - For the fifth year, Kingman Regional Medical Center will sponsor a Women's Health Expo.
The free open house expo will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 18 in the Medical Professional Center of Kingman and Del E. Webb Wellness Center conference rooms.
KRMC will be joined by more than 30 other organizations, offering screenings and information to enhance the health and well being of women in the community.
Attendees will be offered a body fat analysis, skin cancer screenings, vision and hearing tests plus Alpha-1 screening for Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency.
The Alpha-1 screening is a simple finger stick blood draw that can provide the immunoassay level and phenotype. Results will be sent to the physician.
In the past years, the Women's Health Expo has drawn between 200 to 250 people from the community, Public Relations Director Jaime Taylor said. KRMC is expecting more this year due to the available free flu shots for the first 400 guests.
The Women's Health Expo is part of six similar annual community outreach activities by KRMC. They hold a Seniors' Health Fair in February, Kid's Day in April, Cancer Survivor Fair in June, Maternity Fair in July and Diabetes Health Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 1.
