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.
