DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Southeast Health held its 29th men’s health fair at the Dothan Civic Center.
At the health fair, men came in to get free health screenings — having their blood drawn that checked testosterone levels, cholesterol, glucose and informing them about how to reduce the risk of a stroke.
They were also informed about ‘My-Chart’ which lets you manage your health online, and having access to other resources like vision screening, learning about sleep apnea, and much more.
A huge part of making the health fair run smoothly was the ACOM students helping the Southeast Health employees educate and provide access to the community for a healthier lifestyle.
“In order to be a good physician, I believe we need to know how to interact with people in the community. So, volunteering in resources like this and opportunities like this helps our experience and interacting,” Aaron Dramann said.
Dramann said the health fair produced a great turnout which shows that people took advantage of free healthcare access especially for those who need it.
