Health Fair Expo, a yearly program offering free health screenings throughout Southern California, will be held at nearly 100 Southland locations from April 12 to 21.
From 70,000 to 80,000 people are expected to request screenings, and 100,000 are expected to attend the expo.
The screenings involve testing for height, weight, blood pressure, anemia, vision acuity, glaucoma, hearing, dental health, lung capacity and flexibility. Orthopedic exams--covering the neck, back, feet and testing for scoliosis--will be provided, and free immunizations will be available.
The expo will also offer a blood test for $10, which includes screening for diabetes, cholesterol, kidney disease, liver disease and gout. At some locations, free health screening for children over 3 years of age will be provided.
