Des Moines University’s annual “50 & Better” Senior Health Fair combines complimentary health screenings and informational booths with a friendly, social atmosphere.
Attendees at this free, public event can enjoy coffee and refreshments and wind their way through booths specially designed to promote the health and well-being of seniors. Screenings and services range from medication reviews, foot exams and nutritional information to Osteopathic Manual Medicine treatments, bone density scans and cholesterol testing. DMU also hosts outside organizations as vendors, to bring a wide array of health and aging resources under one roof.
This is a great opportunity to mingle with peers and meet with healthcare providers. Please understand that these screenings and services are not a substitute for a thorough and regular evaluation from your health care provider. It is the attendees’ responsibility to convey results to their regular provider and schedule any recommended follow-up appointments.
