Busy living could sometimes cause people to lose track of annual health exams.
The Medical Center of Central Georgia provided a way for hundreds of people to catch up on screenings. The Code Med health fair took place at the Anderson Conference Center in Macon.
50 community and health organizations provided screenings to the public. Those screenings included blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar checks.
Health professionals also provided information on topics like heart disease, mental health, and cancer.
"It draws a lot of people in that maybe wouldn't normally just go see a doctor on their own, plus they can get a lot of different things checked at one time," said Dr. Colt Dunteman, a resident at the Family Health Center.
Bobby Temple, of Macon, attended the fair.
"I think it's so important that they have this for the community. So, I appreciate all of the vendors that come out and do this each year," said Temple.
All of the screenings were free, except for the cardiovascular AngioScreen. The AngioScreen cost $50, and required an appointment.
