POCATELLO – Portneuf Medical Center is hosting a Mini Health Fair on Saturday, May 15, 2021 in honor of Women’s Health Month. Advanced scheduling is available for mammograms; lab work is available for both women and men.

Portneuf’s mobile mammography coach is onsite between 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. near the main entrance and labs are available from 7-11a.m. in the outpatient lab just inside the main entrance. Mammograms must be scheduled in advanced by calling 208-239-1500; most labs require 12 hour fasting.

May is a reminder for women everywhere to prioritize their health and the team at Portneuf encourages women to schedule a well-woman visit, get active, eat healthy, pay attention to mental health and avoid unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, and texting while driving.

Women should also prioritize preventative screenings. Visit Portneuf.org/screenings to learn more. If Americans scheduled routine screenings and exams, educated themselves on risk factors associated with illnesses and, focused on reducing controllable high risk factors, many illness could be prevented or delayed. Please consult with your primary care physician about all screenings and immunizations. Together you and your care provider can outline a plan that is unique to you and your specific needs.

Portneuf would like to wish moms a Happy Mother’s Day on May 8. See you on Saturday, May 15. For more information about the health fair or to download a list of labs available, visit Portneuf.org/womens-health-month.
