More than 100 people attended the Rangely Community Health Fair at Rangely District Hospital Saturday. Given that peewee wrestling in Meeker, a high school track meet and high school baseball games were scheduled for the same morning, health fair coordinator and RDH lab manager Kyle Wren said he was pleased with the turnout. In contrast with previous years, this year the blood draw area was stationed past the hallway containing the health fair booths, which helped attract people to offerings ranging from posture evaluations and and an X-ray booth to an “Ask A Doctor” station and basic health screening. Between pre-fair blood draws and the health fair, more than 400 people had their blood drawn for lab testing, Wren said. Rangely resident Karen Packer won the fair’s grand door prize of a treadmill.
