The deadline to pre-register for Tuesday’s Osage Beach Health Fair at Lake Regional Hospital is FRIDAY//TODAY.

Spokesman Mitch Shields says the morning event will offer free screenings as well as some screenings costing a nominal fee.

And those who need a doctor or have health questions will also find resources…“Provider directories for people, they can get those and there is a whole list of all the physicians we have on staff. And there will be several different departments that will be there so you can get first hand information. I know it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and our folks from the cancer center will be there.”

Again you must pre-register and the deadline to do so is Friday/Today.
