FREE Health Screenings Fund
Our health initiative needs your support to reach our goal of a minimum of 500 FREE health screenings in 52 weeks. Synergy Saturday | Health and Wealth Initiative is in its fourth year and provides FREE health screenings every Saturday at our local Farmers' Market and River Market venue, yet the need exists to do more with your generous support.
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.

Average wellness programs and health awareness initiatives have per-person costs that range $100 - $400 per year. Our minimum goal this year is 500 FREE screenings with a per-person cost of $100; hence, our campaign goal of $5,000. Quite naturally, funds raised above our goal will accomplish additional screenings for every extra $100, as well as, increased staffing and supplies for expanded screenings.
Our initial basic, yet most critical screening, is blood pressure."Blood pressure is one of the most important screenings because high blood pressure usually has no symptoms so it can't be detected without being measured. High blood pressure greatly increases your risk of heart disease and stroke."--- American Heart AssociationOur wish list of expanded screening offerings and supplies supported from your funding are: clinical breast, eye/glaucoma, sleep, glucose, BMI, kidney, skin cancer, dental, Hepatitis C, HIV, and heart attack risk assessments. We currently partner with licensed medical professionals for screeenings of a more technical nature.
2015 - 2017 were a great couple of years and we surely learned a lot. Although much has been accomplished, we believe 2018 will be even more fruitful ... especially with your funding, generosity, participation, sponsorship and social media shares.

Time is of the essence. People are lacking proper healthcare, health assessments, medical treatment and screenings now; consequently, funding is needed now.
"People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."

Working class people of all ages are 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.
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. Our name represents our collaborative and synergistic efforts in population health each Saturday.
Synergy Saturday is an inter-professional mobile screening event that helps people to connect the dots with their numbers to draw a picture of better health. 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 provides awareness of alternative health options that encourage people to choose healing instead of perpetually medicating. This is paramount as medicinal side effects fare worse than original symptoms and increase proportionately with elongated medication duration.
Our proactive approach is simply to invest in the health of others in efforts to trim healthcare costs, reduce non-emergency emergency room incidences and improve communal productivity ... the synergy of life.
