Oswego Health and the Oswego Kiwanis Club will hold their annual multi-organ blood analysis from 6:30 to 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 2 at Leighton Elementary School in Oswego.
The analysis screens individuals for various conditions such as anemia, diabetes, and others, as well as for coronary, kidney, and liver diseases.
Phlebotomists from Oswego Hospital will be on hand to conduct the blood draw. The cost of the analysis is $35. Typically, these tests can cost more than $340.
In addition, this year there are two optional tests that cost $20 each. These tests include a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test, which is recommended for men older than age 50, and a vitamin D test.
Individuals can also ask for a free colorectal kit.
Appointments can be made by calling 341-0018. This phone line is conveniently open 24 hours a day. A 12-hour fast is required.
Checks to cover the cost of the screenings should be made out to Oswego Health.
The results of the multi-organ blood analysis will be sent directly from the Oswego Hospital lab to the participant’s home and physician in an easy to read format.
