SPOTLIGHT: Take time for a Wellness Check at Farmfest

 

Blood pressure exam

All too often we are so busy with work that we forego taking time for a physical or the very least, knowing your essential numbers including blood pressure, heart rate, and glucose. This is especially true for farmers who are busy all the time and may not take time to schedule appointments with health care providers.

FREE HEALTH SCREENINGS

Fortunately for farmers, families and workers, Minnesota Farmfest is offering a convenient way to get a free health screening during the show August 6 – 8, 2019.

Free health screenings will be provided by the Mayo Clinic Health System in Springfield on Tuesday,  the HealthFair11 Community Healthmobile on Wednesday , and the Dermatology Interest Group of the Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota on Thursday.

The screenings are part of a larger safety and wellness initiative at Farmfest in 2019.

The Farm Bureau Financial Wellness and Safety Pavilion is a collaboration between Farm Bureau Financial Services and the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (UMASH) at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. In addition to health screenings, this new area will showcase live farm safety and rescue demonstrations and over 20 exhibitors with up to date agricultural safety and health information on a variety of topics.

Take care of yourself before the fall season begins. Farmers, families and workers of all ages can benefit by putting their health first. Make plans to visit the Wellness and Safety Pavilion at Farmfest 2019 to complete your health screenings.
