After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, Health Check is back!

Free and low-cost health screenings will be available in Bedford and Dundee areas soon. Health Check is a United Way and ProMedica sponsored service that has been popular in Monroe County for over 30 years and was just taking off in Lenawee County after four successful events in 2018 and 2019. Health Check offers low or no cost health screenings that includes a 22-panel blood test for $20, free blood pressure check, free nutrition and medication counseling. Other blood tests are optional for small fee: HA1C (diabetes check) for $15, Vitamin D deficiency check for $10 and Stool Kit for $5. The Monroe County Health Department usually offers a range of adult vaccines as well.

In addition to the Monroe County Health Department, Health Check community partners include ProMedica Monroe Regional Hospital, Family Medical Center, Department of Health and Human Services, Area Agency on Aging, and RSVP volunteers. The costs for this event are minimal due to these partnership collaborations.
