12th annual Health Fair April 2nd

The 12th annual Robson Ranch Health Fair will be held on Saturday, April 2, in the Clubhouse and Sports Club between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. There are many dental, medical, nutritional, retail, assisted living, hospice and insurance participants. It’s a great opportunity to get some questions answered or find that medical professional you might have been looking for in the area.

Hearing tests will be performed by UNT Speech & Hearing Center and Premier Hearing Center at the Sports Club. Check-in will be in the Women’s and Men’s lounges for these tests.

Carter BloodCare is in need of blood donations, and we are sponsoring a blood drive during the Robson Ranch Health Fair. Help the local patients and save lives by donating at our blood drive.

Be a part of something great; please sign up and donate blood during the health fair from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturday, April 2.

Here are some important things to know about blood. Average adults have 10 points of blood in their bodies; you probably have a pint that you can spare. Newborn babies only have a cup. The red blood cells that you donate have a shelf life of 42 days. The plasma that is part of that donation can remain viable for five days. If it is frozen it is useful for one year. That pint of blood weighs one pound.

The pint of blood that you donate goes to three different people to help save their lives; please donate.

Watch for details to sign up for donation time slots. The Carter BloodCare Bus will be in the clubhouse parking lot Saturday, April 2, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
