  • St. Mary’s Medical Center will kick off Jackson County Family Week with a free Family Health Celebration on Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m.-noon.
    The "down on the farm" theme includes a petting zoo and pony rides for children. Adults can receive free health screenings, learn from a master gardener or check out the Farmer’s Market.
    Free health screenings include cholesterol checks (fasting or non-fasting for the first 60 people), blood pressure, blood sugar, bone density, foot screening, stroke risk assessment, sleep assessment, and balance and grip testing. A limited number of carotid doppler screenings are available. Those interested in the carotid screening may make an appointment the day of the fair.
    The event is free.
