Llano Memorial Healthcare System (LMHS) and St. James Lutheran Church of Llano have partnered together for a health fair Thursday, April 2nd from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The health fair will be held at Schorlemmer Hall, the corner of Ford Street and College Street in Llano.

Screenings for cholesterol, PSA (prostate specific antigen), blood sugar, hemoglobin (anemia screen) blood pressure, oxygen saturation level, and body mass index will be offered. All ages are welcome and all screenings are free with exception of a nominal $10 charge for the PSA. In addition to health screenings, exhibitors will have educational material on a variety of health topics ranging from diabetic and nutritional information, to safety and cancer awareness information.

According to Kevin Leeper, LMHS CEO “health fairs are one of Llano Memorial’s outreach efforts and probably the one that touches the most number of lives. For many, the screenings received at one of our health fairs may be the only health services received during the year.”

For more information about the Llano community health fair contact LMHS Community Relations at 325 247-7824 or click on, and select Outreach Efforts.
