Bainbridge- Blood pressure screenings and massages were just some of the activities at Bainbridge College's 4th annual Community Health Fair.

Attendees were screened for diabetes, hypertension, and respiratory ailments. The aim is to get the community concerned about health issues before a problem occurs.

"People will not seek medical attention until there is a very acute or chronic problem so if we can educate them on what to look for, healthier lifestyles, the things that they can do to help promote their own health and have some responsibility for their own health care. It usually means less work for us in the future," said Doris Carmichael, Bainbridge College Practical Nursing Director.

Nurses recommend having yourself screened for many of these tests at least once a year.
