The location of the Multi Blood Analysis offered Saturday, August 6th by Oswego Health and the Oswego Kiwanis Club has been changed to the gymnasium of the Oswego High School.
Because of a construction project at the adjacent Leighton Elementary School, the event has moved next door to the Oswego High School. Participants are encouraged to park in the lot along Liberty Street and enter the main high school door.
There is still time to make an appointment, and residents should call 341-0018. This phone line is conveniently open 24 hours a day. The screening will be offered from 6:30 to 10 a.m. A 12-hour fast is required. Checks to cover the cost of the screenings should be made out to Oswego Health.
The analysis screens individuals for various conditions such as anemia, diabetes, and others, as well as for coronary, kidney, and liver diseases. Lab technicians 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, there is an optional $20 Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test, which is recommended to men older than age 50. Individuals can also ask for a free colorectal kit.
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.
