Health Splash: Exercise, Have Lunch and Take Advantage of Free Screenings Wednesday

Appalachian Regional Healthcare System has partnered with The Williams YMCA of Avery County to host its 3rd annual Health Splash event on June 8, 2016, at the Sloop Medical Office Plaza on the campus of Cannon Memorial Hospital in Linville, North Carolina. The event will take place from 8 am to 1 pm.

Free Health Screenings

Health Splash will feature a variety of free screenings valued at $300, including but not limited to: foot sensation/pulse check, back strength test, behavioral health assessment, finger stick blood glucose, blood pressure checks, pocket EKG and an opportunity to schedule a mammogram.
New to the event this year, Health Splash participants can receive a vascular screening for $20 ($80 value). Appointments for the vascular screening are limited. To schedule an appointment, participants must pre-register for the event by visiting https://apprhs.org/healthsplash-reg. Once registered, an event coordinator will contact you to set up your appointment time.unnamed-2
Also, attendees may have their lab work drawn at the event between 8 am – 11 am. Interested participants may choose between a basic lab package for $30 ($183 value) and a premium package for $75 ($443 value). Additionally, males may pay $25 for a PSA test ($138 value). The lab work will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis. Participants should fast for 12 hours prior to their lab work to ensure more accurate results.


All Health Splash attendees are invited to take advantage of the facilities’ swimming pool, open track and exercise equipment at The Williams YMCA of Avery County during the event.


Perhaps the most popular incentive to attend Health Splash is the free healthy cookout – black bean burger, fresh fruit and baked chips – offered to all participants who register/participate in the health fair. This year, the cookout will take place between 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. under the covered walkway leading into the Sloop Medical Office Plaza. Door prizes for participants will include two Fitbits and an assortment of other prizes.
