Skin Screenings, Mental Health Highlight Code Med Health Fair

Over 35 Community Organizations to Attend 

MACON, GA (Tuesday, June 23, 2014) – Code Med, an annual health fair sponsored by The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) provides a day of healthy learning and fun for the entire family. Free health screenings for adults and children, health and safety tips and demonstrations, exhibits and education from more than 35 community organizations and agencies are features of the event.

The annual health fair is scheduled for Saturday, June 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Anderson Conference Center, 5171 Eisenhower Pkwy., across from Middle Georgia State College (formerly Macon State College).

The following are highlights of the Code Med Health Fair:

  • GACHIP gives families a measure of protection against the disappearance of a child and provides law enforcement with important tools to assist in the speedy and safe recovery of a child. A single photo, fingerprinting, short video interview and DNA sample (from a mouth swab) of the child are compiled to a CD and given to the parents.
  • Breast and skin exams will be performed by appropriately trained and certified healthcare professionals, who will also provide education and training for self-examination. Appointments are required for these private exams. To schedule an appointment, please call 478-633-6336.
  • AngioScreen ® is a service designed to help individuals determine their risk for cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in this country, through an integrated and non-invasive cardiovascular screening program that takes 12 to 15 minutes. Screenings cost $50. Please call 1-800-627-2393 to make an appointment.
  • Free health screenings include blood pressure, blood sugar, body fat analysis, cholesterol and depression. Health topics to be addressed include cancer, diabetes, heart disease, living wills, mental health, stroke and more.

Giveaways and photographs with MCCG's affable mascot, Medi Tedi, will also be available.

Screenings are subject to change.
