Health Fair set for Oct. 10 at Laurel Park
The MedStar Health Mobile Health Center, which delivers primary care to vulnerable communities, will again visit the Oct. 10 MTHA Health Fair at Laurel Park
This year’s Health Fair will be held in the Laurel Recreation Room from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The MedStar Mobile Health Center will be located in the parking lot outside of the Recreation Room. Services this year include flu shots, bloodwork (comprehensive metabolic panels, or CMPs), and blood pressure screenings. The services will be provided by MedStar Sports Medicine, which staffs the Horsemen’s Health System, and Adventist HealthCare LifeWork Strategies.
A massage therapist from LifeWork Strategies will be available on a first-come, first-served basis only for those who have blood drawn for testing. A seating is not guaranteed.
Please note that 10-hour fasting is required for cholesterol tests. All bloodwork results are confidential and will be sent to the address that you provide. The Laurel track kitchen will provide hamburgers and hot dogs to those who participate in the Health Fair.
Laurel Park in 2023 was able to host 273 turf races, the most since 2019 and the highest number among all racetracks in the Mid-Atlantic region.
