SMH Planning Health Fair in Meredith

PLYMOUTH, N.H.— Speare Memorial Hospital is planning a community health fair in Meredith for Saturday, May 12, from 8 – 11 a.m. at the Meredith Community Center. Free health screenings and information will be offered to community members to help promote their overall health and wellness. Access to the fair will be through the Community Center’s main entrance, then proceed right to meeting rooms B and C.

Among the screening services and information available will be:

  • Blood Pressure Checks
  • Bone Density Screening Cholesterol/Glucose Screening (12-hour fasting recommended)
  • Diabetes/Nutrition Information and Education
  • Patient and Family Centered Care
  • Respiratory/Cardiopulmonary Health Information
  • Sleep Lab Information

Speare’s Director of Community Relations Michele Hutchins explains the continued economic uncertainty impacts the number of residents who are uninsured or underinsured, forcing them to make difficult choices and delaying preventative care.

“Health Fairs are one of our most important community outreach initiatives,” says Hutchins. “We have seen a significant increase in the number of people attending our annual fall health fair, but not everyone who wants to attend can. As a result, we get numerous calls inquiring about a spring one and in a location other than Plymouth. We are hosting the Meredith Health Fair in response to those requests.

The Meredith Community Center is located on Route 3, north of the lights in downtown Meredith. Call Speare’s Office of Community Relations at (603) 238-6468 if you have questions or need more information.

Speare Memorial Hospital —a 24-hour, acute care, non-profit community hospital and health care provider serving Plymouth and the communities of central New Hampshire—is nationally ranked as a HealthStrongTM: Top 100 Critical Access Hospital.
