On April 26, 2014, White Moun­tain Re­gional Hos­pi­tal again did the choles­terol and PSA screen­ings and along with their sleep lab, and phys­i­cal ther­apy cen­ter. The Flight for Life he­li­copter, who has al­ways at­tended, was grounded due to the wind and was un­able to make it this year, but did send a rep­re­sen­ta­tive. Dr. Arizaga, a der­ma­tol­o­gist, screened a large num­ber of peo­ple for skin can­cer. PMS, Can­cer, DWI, Grass­roots, were there, as well as the Sher­iffs Of­fice and State Po­lice, Fire De­part­ment, the EMS (who did oxime­try and blood pres­sure) with their Am­bu­lance.

There were free hair­cuts and mas­sages, as well as free break­fast, A Sto­ry­teller. A Silent Auc­tion, with prizes do­nated by com­mu­nity mem­bers as well as the pre­sen­ters was held. The money raised goes to a schol­ar­ship given to one Se­nior in both Re­serve and Que­mado go­ing into a health field.

Other pre­sen­ters, just as im­por­tant, were LEPC, Gila Hospice, Blue Cross Blue Shield, PMS Health Ex­change, De­part­ment of Health, Re­serve Vil­lage Li­brary, Cac­tus Com­pany, Food Prepa­ra­tion, Adult Pro­tec­tive Ser­vices, Sun­rise Air, Se­na­tor Hein­rich’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Life Quest, Blue Moon Herbs, Dr. Vickie Horn­buckle.

The Ca­tron County Health Coun­cil would like to thank all of the pre­sen­ters and the vol­un­teers for their time, as well as all the in­for­ma­tion that was handed out.

Hope to see every­one again next year!
