Region 8 hospital helps local men get healthy

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-   The Arkansas Methodist Medical Center's 12th Annual Health Fair kicked off early Thursday morning and well into the afternoon.

Almost five hundred Region 8 men were given the chance for free lab work, health screenings, and could ask their questions one on one with medical professionals.

Paragould resident Marc Reeves says an opportunity like this is one that shouldn't be passed up, "Our residents really need just to have that check up and catch things maybe they really didn't know was going on in their life, like the prostate exam and the other areas of high blood pressure before they have a heart attack or something major."

The medical staff at AMMC say if the public has any questions about any of the topics discussed at the health fair you may contact them in the Educational Department.
