North Memorial Health Check at the Minnesota State Fair

North Memorial logoIf you’re heading to the Great Minnesota Get-Together why not use it as an opportunity to get informed and get healthy?  North Memorial would like to help.  They’ll be offering State Fair health screenings at their booth in the HealthFair11 building at the corner of Dan Patch and Cooper Street.  Here’s what you’ll find:

  • Weight Check.  You might think that the fair is the worst place to check your weight.  It’s not.  In fact, you’ve got a built in excuse if the number is high.  Just blame it on the cheese curds.
  • Body Mass Index.  Some say that knowing your BMI is just as important as knowing your blood pressure.  It’s a simple calculation and you’ll get an answer on the spot.
  • Diabetes Screening.  According to the American Diabetes Association, many  people with the disease don’t even know they have it. Get screened and find out if this common condition affects you.

And be sure to check back here.  I’ll be posting healthy tips for navigating the Minnesota State Fair and how to find the healthiest foods while you’re there.
