Free Health Fair to Honor Military Personnel at Smyrna National Guard Base

July 1, 2016

(Smyrna, TN) – Healthy Tennessee, a non-profit organization founded by Vanderbilt Trauma Surgeon Dr. Manny Sethi, will provide a free health fair to Military Personnel as well as Smyrna-area residents on Saturday, July 23rd at Smyrna National Guard Base in Smyrna, Tennessee from 10am to 12pm.

Healthy Tennessee is also excited to partner with TwelveStone Health Partners, a leader in providing patient support in the post-acute care environment including pharmacy and a wide range of medical supplies and services. TwelveStone Health Partners is serving as the primary sponsor of this free health fair and will be in attendance to provide insight and information on simplifying the process of providing patients exceptional health care.

Dozens of regional physicians, nurses, and healthy lifestyle companies will provide free health screenings, educational conversations with doctors, free health-related products, and tools for local residents to lead better, healthier lives.

“Our mission is to connect health care providers with our fellow Tennesseans. For over four years we’ve hosted health fairs throughout the state and look forward to doing the same in the Rutherford County area – especially for the men and women in uniform that protect our freedoms every day. We’re humbled by the response we’re seeing from doctors and health care-focused organizations giving their time and resources for this worthy cause”, stated Dr. Manny.

Some of the free health screenings for all ages include blood pressure checks, BMI (body mass index), blood sugar screenings, eye exams for glaucoma, retina exams, well-child checks, allergy screenings, basic dental screenings, hearing exams and diabetes risk assessments.

“It is very important to us, as a company and personally to support our military and their families in making healthcare easier to navigate. We applaud Dr. Manny’s efforts in bringing this type of healthcare opportunity directly to a military base here in Middle Tennessee” said Shane Reeves, Chief Executive Officer of TwelveStone Heath Partners.

“This health fair is absolutely free. All are welcome, and we look forward to helping our Military Personnel and local residents get healthier,” said Dr. Manny.
