Blood Analysis Program:
The Zonta Club of Oneida is sponsoring the AMBA (Annual Metathasic Blood Analysis) Wellness program, a blood screening program that serves as a community service as well as a fundraiser.

This service is not covered by health insurance, so if you don’t have health insurance, this is a much more affordable opportunity to have your blood tested. Proof of ID is requested. Pre-authorization by your physician is required. Officials say physicians are commonly very willing to give approval to their patients for this worthwhile program. This event is held twice a year, in September and in March. Appointments for the upcoming event are available from 7-10a.m. Call 1-800-234-8888Monday-friday 8:30 a.m. — 5p.m. Provide your physician’s name and address at the time of the call.
