Oswego Health and the Fulton Kiwanis Club will hold a Multi-Organ Blood Analysis on Saturday, June 5 in the cafeteria of G. Ray Bodley High School.

This full battery of tests can help prevent potential health problems. 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. At the event, free colorectal screening kits will be available.

To make an appointment, residents can call 341-0094. The screening will be offered from 6:30 to 9:30 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. Ed Hogan, Oswego Hospital Laboratory Manager said that the most popular screening at the event is the portion of the analysis that assesses LDL and HDL cholesterol along with triglycerides.

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.
