Valley View Hospital will be holding three community health fairs this spring, bringing blood tests, medical screening and education to various locations. There will also be two opportunities for an early blood predraw to get your blood results back before the health fair. A predraw allows you to ask questions about your results at the Heart Health Fair doctor’s information booth.
