Bemidji Rotary, Sanford Health to host blood screening event

The Bemidji Rotary Club and Sanford Health of Northern Minnesota will host a blood screening event next month.

Appointments are required for the three-day event, Wednesday through Friday, May 18-20, at the Bemidji Medical Center in the Education Center.

The comprehensive screening is $35, and includes screenings for cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoproteins, low-density lipoproteins, glucose, creatinine, hemoglobin, white blood cell count and liver.

Fasting is not a requirement, but participants may fast, while still consuming water, 9-12 hours before the test.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Bemidji Rotary Club and North Country Park Playground.
