Health Fair was a Big Success
McArthur – Over 300 people attended the recent Mayers
Intermountain Healthcare Foundation Health Fair. The annual
event featured more than 20 vendors representing various
departments of Mayers Memorial Hospital District as well as
other outside vendors.
A free breakfast was provided to participants. Approximately
290 people had labs performed for a minimal fee. The event
provided a wealth of health information and screenings.
Lab results can be accessed through the new patient portal
at MMHD. If the participant provided their email at the
Health Fair, they can simply log in to get results.
All patients that provide their email address will receive
and email from the hospital’s Relay Health account inviting
them to setup their secure account. Once the patient has set
up an account, they will be able to access their medical
Lab and Radiology results can be seen as soon as results are
finalized instead of picking them up or waiting for them in
conventional mail. Patients will also have access to view
current medications and be able to add their allergies,
immunizations, and past health history.
All of the information can be printed or emailed to any
doctor that the patient desires. The accounts are secure and
Chamber Mixer Brought Good Cheer
By Martha Fletcher
On Wed., April 16th Gallery & Gifts had a mixer co-hosted by
the Fall River Valley Chamber of Commerce that started at
5pm. The mixer was lightly attended but there was punch and
assortment of cookies, cream puffs and other delectable
desserts. Donna Hamilton and Engracia Garcia and Ken
Fletcher stopped by to enjoy the festivities.
There is a “Silent Auction” on items
created by local artists so if you get a chance stop by
Gallery & Gifts during regular business hours to see if
something catches your eye, and you just can’t live without.
Shop early for Christmas or a birthday or some other special
occasion. Buy local, it keeps the business economy here as
well as the dollars in our community.
