Mark Twain Medical Center Announces 6th Annual Spring Health Fair


Mark Twain Medical Center (MTMC) will be holding its 6th Annual Health Fair and Lupus Fun/Run Walk on Saturday, March 28th from 8am until noon at Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys.

Over forty community health related service groups will participate in this community-wide event. A wealth of information will be available on topics such as senior health services, health insurance, nutrition, and fitness. Low cost testing and services include Blood Analysis ($45), and Bone Density Screenings ($10). In addition to the five-panel blood analysis (this test consists of a chemistry panel, thyroid, complete blood count, lipid panel, iron for women, and PSA for men), the Medical Center will also now screen for vitamin D deficiencies.

The 6th Annual Calaveras 5k Fun/Run Walk for Lupus Awareness in memory of Linda Jean Mundy will also be held on the day of the Health Fair. The race starts at 8:30. The fees are $10 for children ages 6 to 12 and $20 for ages 13+; with children under age 6 being free. For race information, call Paul Mundy @ (209) 754-2604.

“Our Mission is to improve the greater health of our greater community by providing quality health care services, exceeding the expectations of those we serve,” said Craig Marks, Hospital President. “Holding our Health Fairs in various locations is both a part of our Mission and something to which we look forward. Our ability to provide vital low cost and free health services to our community is a privilege, along with partnering with community groups to sponsor fun run/walks. Not only do these raise funds for a good cause, they also provide opportunities for friends and family to enjoy exercising together.”
