Local

REEDSVILLE, W.Va. – WV Caring held its rescheduled 20th annual mini health fair, offering blood work at the Reedsville Volunteer Fire Department in Preston County.

The annual fair was moved from March to June due to the pandemic, over 100 people had blood drawn and the WVU Cancer Institute Bonnie’s Bus was fully booked with appointments.

WV Caring Public Affairs Vice President, Cynthia Woodyard stated it’s a good way for people to start the year and be healthy.

“There’s a lot of people in the area that do not have the transportation or don’t want to go too Morgantown or some of the other bigger places. And we always brought healthcare here”, explained Woodyard.

Woodyard also stated the screening prices are affordable and have not increased. The mini fair tests available include:

  • B-12 and Folate
  • CA 125
  • Vitamin D
  • Multiphasic panel
  • Thyroid panel with TSH
  • Hemoglobin A1c
  • PSA

Woodyard also said due to the pandemic they were unable to have their normal fair which is usually much larger. Participants were not mandated to wear masks but were encouraged to do so.
