The Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center will offer free health screenings to adults Saturday during its annual health fair in Newhall.

Kaiser Permanente, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, Blue Cross, Capri Villa, John Hancock and other area organizations will sponsor the fair, scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. at the center.

Free screenings will be given for glaucoma, visual acuity and high blood pressure. Also free will be hearing tests, body-fat analysis, spirometry for pulmonary function and screenings for bone density and determotology. There will be free screenings, too, by chiropractic and holistic medical groups.

In addition to free screenings, participants can get a variety of tests at greatly reduced prices, organizers said.

Tests of blood for an array of problems, including diabetes, will be available for $25. For those who order the blood-panel tests, there also will be an optional thyroid test for $15 and a test for prostatic cancer antigens for $25.

The center is located at 22900 Market St. Anyone needing more information can call (805) 255-1588.
