There is a minimal cost to cover the cost of materials only. Participants can have water and medication during the 12-hour fasting period needed to be done prior to the blood test. Applicant’s blood pressures will also be taken by the Chickasaw County Public Health Nurses during the health fair (no cost to participants).
