Highland District Hospital hosted its annual Health Fair on Saturday, April 14 with more than 800 attendees.

The Highland District Hospital Foundation sponsored event and offered reduced cost comprehensive blood screenings, colorectal cancer screenings, and prostate-specific antigen screenings. Additional free screening services included pulmonary function testing, skin cancer screenings, diabetic screenings, and memory screenings.
