Help Fund Our Weekly FREE Health Screening Events
Screenings save lives! Health screenings catch diseases, illnesses or potential causes in earliest stages when either treatment, an all-natural supplement, or simple lifestyle change has its greatest chance for success. Because our free health screenings have a minimum per-person value of $100, it can be said that for every $100 raised a life is saved! 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 a weekly wellness pop-up style event, plus a health and wealth initiative with free health screenings, giveaways, health-education handouts, and risk assessments to reverse poor health and poverty. In addition, we offer free Medicare consultation from licensed insurance professionals. Synergy Saturday is the first weekly inter-professional pop-up style screening event, which helps people to connect the dots with their screening numbers to draw and see a complete picture of better health. Our name represents our collaborative efforts in population health each and every Saturday.
Our health initiative needs your support to reach our minimum goal of 500 FREE health screenings in 52 weeks per participating community. 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 and take care to rural communities 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. We humanize and personalize the healthcare experience and desire to take this kind of care to rural communities that are already identified as Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs).

Average wellness programs and health awareness initiatives have per-person costs that range $100 - $400 per year. Our minimum goal for the year is 500 free health screenings with a per-person value of $100; hence, our campaign goal is $5,000. Because our free health screenings have a minimum per-person value of $100, it can be said that for every $100 raised a life is truly saved! 500 screenings in 52 weeks breaks down to roughly 10 participants per Saturday ... a reachable and reasonable goal.
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 Association.
Our wish list of expanded screening offerings and supplies supported from your funding are: auditory, 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 - 2018 were a great couple of years and we surely learned a lot. Although much has been accomplished, we believe 2019 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. 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.
