The RGH family will be hosting our 7th annual health fair! It's a great opportunity for area residents to take advantage of free preventative screenings, learn more about preventative health, and a reduced-cost blood screening panel. Prevention and early detection are both key to maintaining a healthy life.

The RGH Emergency Deparment will also provide a Car Seat Clinic from 10:00 a.m. until Noon and will be giving away a *limited number* of car seats!

The Pharmacy Department will be displaying the home poison prevention look-alike display. Parents bring by the kids. It will be interactive with kids guessing "candy or medicine".

Rehab Services/Physical Therapy can help patients by assisting in the recovery from an injury and avoid future injury by reducing pain in the soft tissues(muscles, tendons and ligaments), improving flexibility and function, and building the muscle strength. RGH Physical Therapists can also evaluate how you do an activity and make suggestions for doing the activity in a way that is less likely to result in an injury. Example: Back pain or a Meniscus tear. Physical therapy can help you live more easily with chronic or ongoing health conditions. Example: Spinal stenosis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson's disease, and Vertigo.

The Cardiopulmonary Department will offer screenings for Obstructive and Restrictive Lung Disease, Saturation Studies and information in the areas of COPD, Asthma, Heart Disease, and Smoking Cessation.
