Since it began in 2000, our annual Health Expo has screened more than 12,000 people and provided over 51,900 health screenings at no cost to participants. 

This year registration begins at 8:45 a.m., screenings start at 9 a.m. at the Columbus Trade Center on Saturday, January 26.

On average, more than $1,000 in medical screenings are provided free of charge to participants and you will have an opportunity to review your results with a healthcare professional.

This is a popular community event, and some lines will be long, so be sure to arrive early so you will have time to do all the screenings you want to do.

Adults 18 and older - there are no screenings available for children.

Screenings include blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, sickle cell, cancer, eye tests and many, many more.

If you know someone who needs to attend please bring them down to the Trade Center on January 26th. 

You might just save their life.
