MACON, Ga. — On Saturday, the Medical Center, Navicent Health held a free health fair at the Anderson Conference Center in Macon.
The Code Med Health Fair had 40 booths offering free health screenings, demonstrations, and seminars on personal health.
People received basic tests for blood sugar, HIV, and breast and skin cancer.
Attendants also got information on topics like diabetes, heart disease, and mental health.
Navicent Health says the fairs are designed to keep people aware.
"It's kind of like a car dashboard. Sometimes you have yellow lights come on, sometimes you have red lights. Well, we want to be your yellow lights and your red lights. If we find something that's abnormal at a health fair, we would suggest you go talk to a doctor about this and get follow up care," Health Educator Charles Krauss said.
Navicent's next health fair will be targeted specifically for men, and that will be on September 28 starting at 7 a.m. at Central Georgia Technical College.
