MERIDIAN—The Idaho State University Bengal Lab will offer blood-draw services Thursday, March 12, 7:30 a.m. to noon, in the SIM multipurpose room near the front entrance of the Sam and Aline Skaggs Health Science Center at ISU-Meridian, 1311 E. Central Drive.
Services are provided at a deep discount and available to anyone in the community. No appointment is necessary. Minors require parental or guardian consent.
For $45, attendees can get a coronary risk profile, comprehensive metabolic panel screening, complete blood count and thyroid stimulating hormone test. Other tests, including diabetes monitoring, thyroid function and prostate screening, are available for $15 each.
