50 & Better Health Fair

  • Overview
    Join us during Des Moines University's "50 & Better" Health Fair on Saturday, October 8, starting at 8am in the Olsen Center at Des Moines University!
    The “50 & Better” Health Fair combines complimentary health screenings and informational booths with a friendly, social atmosphere. Attendees at this free, public event can enjoy coffee & refreshments and wind their way through booths specially designed to promote the health and well-being of older adults. Screenings & services range from foot and ankle exams and nutritional information to balance screenings and vision testing. *NO FASTING REQUIRED FOR SCREENINGS THIS YEAR*.
    DMU also hosts outside organizations as vendors, to bring a wide array of health and aging resources under one roof.
    This is a great opportunity to mingle with peers and meet with health care providers. Please understand that these screenings and services are not a substitute for a thorough and regular evaluation from your health care provider. It is the attendees’ responsibility to convey results to their regular provider and schedule any recommended follow-up appointments.
