Manchester Memorial Hospital Holds Its Annual Health Fair
  • Manchester Memorial Hospital (MMH) held its annual CREATION Health themed Health Fair at EKU Manchester Campus on  April 19, 2018.
  • The Health Fair was free and open to the public, and offered free health screenings, give-a-ways, door prizes, and information for every family member’s health.

    “We are excited to offer various community events like the health fair to the residents of Clay County,” said Hurriyat Ghayyur, Director of Marketing at the hospital. “In today’s world, knowledge is power, and with the information offered at events like this, we learn how to live healthier lives and take care of ourselves.”

    At the fair, participants learned about heart health, women’s health, diabetes control and prevention, smoking cessation, stress management, maintaining a healthy weight, exercise and fitness and much more.

    Health screenings such as blood pressure and blood sugar etc. were done on the spot by the hospital team. “Encouraging people to get screened and lead a healthier lifestyle is a very important part of what we do,” said Ghayyur. “The earlier you know if there are any problems, the earlier they can be addressed.”

    There were many wonderful door prizes to be won that day. TLC Medical Supply donated Blood Pressure Cuff, won by Pam Mathis, while Be Healthy with Beth donated a T-Shirt and a month’s free exercise classes won by Trinity Downey and Beverly Smith. LA Medical gave away a blood pressure cuff given to Pamela Mathis; Physician Services of Memorial Hospital gave two gift baskets away won by Faye Napier and Marilyn Hoffman; Morgan Pharmacy gave away a blood pressure cuff to Yvonne Collins and a $50 Subway Gift Card to Harvey Travis.  Clay County Physical Therapy along with Booneville Physical Therapy gave away a Canning Cookbook won by Sherry Owens and a exercise ball won by Yvonne Collins.
