Medical Services for Less

Local health fairs aren’t the only way to get free or cheap medical screenings and services. Here are a few others:

Inexpensive cholesterol screenings and other blood tests are available at local labs. Find one under “Laboratories” in the Yellow Pages or under “Service Centers” at BloodWorks­USA.

Low-income and uninsured women can get free or low-cost Pap smears and mammograms locally through a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention program.

If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes or allergies, you could get free medication and treatment by enrolling in a medical study listed at www.clini caltrials.gov.

To talk to a licensed counselor or psychologist, starting at $1.60 per minute, check out www.mytherapynet.com. Online counseling is also available at eTherapistsOnline.com.
