Early blood draws
North Fork residents line up for early blood draws at the Paonia campus of Delta-Montrose Technical College. This year, Delta County Memorial Hospital did 16 more blood draws than a year ago. There will be another opportunity to take advantage of the low-cost service at the upcoming Delta County Health Fairs — Wednesday, March 20, at the Paonia campus of DMTC; Thursday, March 21, at Bill Heddles Recreation Center in Delta; and Friday, March 22, at the Cedaredge Community Center. The doors open at 6:30 a.m. Blood pressure, BMI, hearing tests and eye tests are among the basic screenings offered at the health fairs. In addition, the Delta health fair will feature displays and information from community health partners.
