The L’Anse American Legion Post #144 is hosting a free Veterans Health Fair Saturday from 1:00 to 6:00 PM. No appointments are necessary and a variety of nursing services will be available, including blood pressure/vital sign screening, oxygen saturation screening, blood sugar screening (glucometer), med-minder set up (with current med list), COVID symptom screening and follow-up with Primary Care recommendations.
Representatives from the Baraga County Veterans Service Office will also be on hand. Staff are normally available only on Wednesdays between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. Baraga’s VSO coordinates with the Houghton County branch to provide transportation to the Veteran Affairs hospital in Iron Mountain, and it offers a comprehensive explanation of the benefits available to you for your military service, and more.
