Kiwanis Sponsors AMBA Wellness Program

The Jamestown Kiwanis Club is sponsoring an AMBA Wellness Program on Saturday at the Immanuel Lutheran Church at 556 E. Second St. from 6-10 a.m. The AMBA Wellness Program includes blood tests for coronary disease, liver and kidney disease, anemia, diabetes and other types of diseases. The cost for the full AMBA panel, including the Kiwanis sponsorship fee, is $43. The following optional tests are also available for an additional fee and require a separate script from a physician: Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), TSH, Vitamin D – 25, Hemoglobin A1C and Insure Colon Rectal Kit.

Kiwanis President Andy Alpaugh stated, “With the changes in health insurance, many people find themselves with high deductibles to be met before any services are covered. While this has been a valuable program for many years, it is even more so now, as those unable or unwilling to spend hundreds of dollars for routine testing can still get the screenings needed to maintain their health.”

Anyone interested in participating should contact their physician for permission to have the test results sent to their office. For further information or to schedule an appointment call 1-800-234-8888 by Friday.

Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. New members are always welcome. For more information, call Andy Alpaugh at 708-6993 or Wendy Wilcox at 450-6874.
