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. The program will take place at the Canastota American Legion, 325S. Peterboro Street. A comprehens­ive battery of blood tests is available for $41.00payable by check or money order made out to AMBA. No cash, please. Proof of identity is required. 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. The Zonta Club requests a $5sponsor fee at the time of the screening. This money is used to fund educationa­l scholarshi­ps for women in the community.
