West Feliciana Parish Hospital believes you have the power to improve and protect your health. For twenty years, WFPH has been hosting an annual health fair where residents of surrounding parishes can come and have screenings, testings, and educational information given to them for free. The first health fair held at WFPH consisted of free screenings on weight, height, blood pressure, blood type, hemocult, diabetes, cholesterol, hearing and vision. A large selection of vendors from different groups were also on hand to give information regarding nutrition, AIDS, self breast examinations, vascular screenings and fingerprinting.

Today, the test, screenings, educational information and vendors have grown. New screenings and testings now include blood glucose screening, PSA, colon screenings, lipid panel, carotid artery and aortic aneurysm screening, a blood drive, fire house safety, healthy eating information, and adult flu vaccines for free. WFPH strives to make the day eventful for both adults and children. A Health Walk has also been added recently. Participants will meet at Parker Park at 8am and walk to the Hospital for the start of the Health Fair. Donations for the walk will benefit the Capital Area United Way for Mental Health agencies. The 2014 West Feliciana Health Fair will be held on September 27th from 9am to 1 pm.
