JESSAMINE COUNTY HEALTH CHECK‐UP DAY OFFERS FREE HEALTH SCREENINGS

Participants of the Annual Jessamine County Health Check‐up Day on Saturday, May 13
from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Jessamine County Technical Center (JCTC) will enjoy free healthcare screenings that include chiropractic, blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, EKG,
height/weight, vision, kidney analysis, and more.

During the event, attendees can browse exhibits provided by health insurance and
rehabilitation companies, Jazzercise, pediatricians, the Child Care Council, the Jessamine
County Public Library, and others.

Door prizes and gift cards for items including gift baskets, diapers, a car seat, stroller, bike
and helmet will be distributed throughout the day. Free Starbucks coffee will also be
provided.

The event is organized and supported by the Jessamine County Health Department
(JCHD), Jessamine County Fiscal Court, Kentucky Department for Community Based
Services, Jessamine County Schools, and Jessamine County Emergency Medical Services.

“This is an easy, no cost way for Jessamine County residents to check up on their health,”
JCHD Public Health Services Manager Andrea Brown said. “Attendees enjoy the fact that
the screenings are free and no appointment is necessary. They also enjoy the fact that they
get to talk with health care professionals and other vendors about health‐related issues.
The information and exhibits that are provided during the event help residents learn about
programs that are going on in the community that they can use to benefit themselves and
their families.”

The Jessamine County Career & Technology Center is located at 881 Wilmore Road,
Nicholasville (behind the Jessamine County Board of Education Office just off the
Nicholasville Road By‐Pass).
