April 5, 2018


Baker University and the Baldwin City Recreation Commission will sponsor the 17th annual Community Wellness Festival from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the Collins Center at the university’s Baldwin City campus.

About 60 exhibitors are expected at the health fair, said Sherri Pahcoddy, coordinator of Baker's student health and counseling center. Free blood pressure, posture, body fat, hearing, vision and dental screenings will be available.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital will offer fasting blood draws for lipid profiles, prostate antigens and more from 8 to 10 a.m. for $40 or $50, depending on the test.

There will be drawings for door prizes every 15 minutes.
