Bridger Valley Health Fair & Blood Draws
The Bridger Valley Community Blood Draws
are held each April in the Bridger Valley, followed by the
approximately 2 weeks later.
The 2016 Blood Draws are scheduled for April 7th, 8th, and 9th from 6 am until 10 am each day. The blood draws will be at Clifford-Olguin Dental Clinic in Urie, across from the Urie Mini Mall. Poster
The 2016 Health Fair is set for April 30th from 8 am until 10 am at the Lyman High School. Here you can pick up your draw results and even have them interpreted by a Physician on scene. There are a lot of healthcare related booths and information also at the fair. If you are interested in having a health related booth, contact Lenita at 307-787-3800 Monday, Thursday and Friday.
In addition, we are always looking for volunteers to help with the blood draws, and will provide training if you haven't helped out before. Please contact Susan at 307-799-5907 or Lenita at 307-787-3800 if you are interested.
Twice a year, we partner with Wyoming Health Fairs to bring wellness lab testing to Uinta County. Tests are drawn outside of the normal doctor's office setting, but results are still accurate and accepted by physicians everywhere. You will find a significant cost savings from general lab draws done in a medical facility. Wellness draws are those geared towards wellness programs, not diagnosis. However, the lab results have helped to point out potential problem areas, so they are a vital information link to take to your doctor. In addition, if your insurance company has a wellness program, you will likely be reimbursed for costs if you send in a copy of your receipt.
Generally, we ask that you "fast" for 12 hours prior to having your blood drawn to get an accurate check for the tests you desire.
"Fasting"means not eating while still drinking LOTS of water or black coffee unless you are Diabetic. Diabetics should eat and take their medications as usual. Important - Those having the CRP test drawn cannot have had any caffeine for the prior 12 hours.
By drinking lots of water, you make it easy for those who draw your blood to find an easily accessible vein, which makes this an easier experience for us all.
There is also a survey to tell us how we did. You can enter information three ways - as a coordinator, participant, or write us a testimonial if your testing helped you in a significant way that you want us to know about. Please take the time to let us know how we're doing by clicking
