Many Industries, including Healthcare, are pulling out of Rural America as grimly reported by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) in their recent article, Rural America Is the New 'Inner City' and its follow-up, Hard Times Come to Much of Rural America.

"Consolidation has shut down many rural hospitals, which have struggled from a shortage of patients with employer-sponsored insurance. At least 79 rural hospitals have closed since 2010, according to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Rural residents say irregular care and long drives for treatment left them sicker, a shift made worse by high rates of rural obesity and smoking. "Once you have a cancer diagnosis...your probability of survival is much lower in rural areas," said Gopal K. Singh, a senior federal health agency research analyst who has studied mortality differences."

Enough is enough! Synergy Saturday has a real and immediate solution, which can have a fantastic and far-reaching impact. As others roll out, Synergy Saturday is poised, practiced, prepared and ready to roll in with Free Health Screenings and preventive healthcare with your financial help and support!

Screenings save lives! Health screenings catch diseases, illnesses or potential causes in earliest stages when either treatment, an all-natural supplement, or a simple lifestyle change has its greatest chance for success. Our participants are empowered by knowing their numbers for the sake of their health and healthy lifestyles. Synergy Saturday encourages its participants to lead healthier, longer, and more productive lives.

Synergy Saturday is first of its kind. It organizes to re-brand healthcare to make it "cool", engaging and relevant to today's youth without jeopardizing, minimizing or omitting practical and traditional standards of quality care to all participants, especially seniors. Synergy Saturday successfully bridges economic, ethnic, generation and religious gaps to provide world-class quality of care that is truly inclusive and universal.

Our small health initiative with a "really big heart and bigger idea" needs your support to purchase two types of service or transport vehicles: (1) transportation of chairs, equipment and tables; and (2) transportation of screeners and screening supplies (non-emergency use only). We need a few quality pre-owned, multi-use vehicles for reliable transport of chairs, equipment, and tables for setup of our FREE health screenings events. Also, needed are refurbished ambulances so we can take our mobile screening events on the road ... especially to remote and rural locations.(1) transportation of chairs, equipment and tables; and(2) transportation of screeners and screening supplies (non-emergency use only)
Synergy Saturday | Health and Wealth Initiative
is in its fourth year and currently provides FREE health screenings every Saturday at our local Farmers' Market and River Market venue, but hopes to expand to remote and rural locations where people urgently need screenings the most.

Due to Synergy Saturday's visibility and its much-needed healthcare outreach in our Capital City of Little Rock, Arkansas, requests for our event are growing from churches, communities, farmers' market venues, health fairs, schools, etc. It is wonderful that our initiative and voluntary service is being sought and requested; however, it is equally painful to know the need exists but mobility challenges currently hinder our ability to effectively meet the demand.

"Few people with a big idea have big money. Few people with big money have a big idea. Need is the seed of common interests that yield uncommon results!"
--- Larry Freeman, Synergy Saturday

People are lacking proper healthcare, health assessments, medical treatment and screenings now; consequently, funding is needed now. Even the working class of all ages is now faced with more month than money as jobs are forcing people to do more with fewer hours and less pay, which in turn causes budgeting choices between bills, food, medicine or healthcare regimen. Now, consider the plights of the elderly, non-mobile, special needs and veterans with a limited budget and/or low-to-no income.

Poor health and poverty unfortunately go hand in hand; therefore, our health and wealth initiative targets both. Equity stake in the American Dream creates a desire to oppose poor health and live longer in order for its recipients to better enjoy the fruits of their acquisition. Synergy Saturday is a weekly wellness project and health awareness initiative with FREE health screenings, risk assessments, giveaways and health education handouts for poor health and poverty alleviation.

2015 - 2017 were a great first three years and we surely learned a lot. Although much was accomplished, we believe 2018 will be even more fruitful ... especially with your funding, generosity, participation and social media shares.
