The very best way to save on your health costs, is to attend the FREE Community Health Fairs
that are routinely offered in S.E. Michigan! These fairs are always listed on this Website's Face-
book page. You can have many routine and standard tests done (with no office visit bills or Co-
pays) and the results are sent to your doctor's office where you can call or visit your doctor to
receive them. You can also usually set up an online account with the hospital that you use to
view your results! Periodically there are special events held where even more extensive testing
can be done for FREE or very little money. Always take advantage of these as well as the immuni-
zations many of them offer. Click on the Facebook icon above to be taken to that page!
