HEALTH Capital City Weekly As robins arrive in the spring so, too, do Wrangellites flock to the Nolan Center for Wrangell's annual Health Fair. This year's event saw record numbers of blood screenings performed, including a new test, which measures vitamin D level. The Wrangell Medical Center lab, working with volunteers from the Fire Department and community, drew blood for 13,310 separate tests this year. The lab processed 510 Health Profiles, up from 461 last year, and 330 people had the new vitamin D test. Wrangell Medical Center has offered the $25 reduced-rate screenings at the Health Fair for over 15 years, screenings that cost anywhere from $125.66 (HA1C) to $546.39 (Health Profile) when normally ordered by a doctor.
