United Health Organization (UHO) introduced two new tests during Project Healthy Living’s 2014 opening weekend. Participants can now see 3D images of the body’s critical systems in real time. Chronic pain sufferers can receive assistance with pain management by using the TrueTesla electro-muscular stimulator. Both tests can be done for a nominal fee that accounts for a fraction of the retail rate. Participants must be 18 years of age or accompanied by an adult. The Project Healthy Living spring season extends through May 17.

"3D imaging of the human body represents the type of state-of-the-art technology that participants have come to expect in diagnostic testing,” said Ifetayo B. Johnson, Executive Director of UHO and Project Healthy Living. Technicians will measure the efficiency of heart function, digestive and nervous systems of participants. The TrueTesla electro-muscular stimulator will be of interest to those who suffer from muscle atrophy or chronic pain. Screenings for obesity, body fat and muscle composition, hypertension, blood oxygen, vision and hearing are free of charge. A new fee of $55 has been implemented for the basic blood test that screens for 26 indicators, including thyroid, kidney and liver function, glucose and cholesterol levels. For a nominal fee, tests for asymptomatic diseases like diabetes, cancer and heart disease are also available. Johnson added that PHL pop-up clinics have been added to the schedule so that participants can receive analysis of their test results, answers to their questions and follow up primary care if they need it.

Navigators knowledgeable about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the new Medicaid expansion will also be on hand to assist attendees with registering for medical insurance on the federal HealthCare.gov and MiBridges.michigan.gov/access websites. If an application was started prior to March 31st, applicants have until April 15th to go online and apply for an extension. Persons who experienced changes in their status (marriage, job loss, birth of a child, loss of insurance, etc.) also qualify for the special enrollment period extension. Those persons with income below approximately $16,100 for a single person or about $32,900 for a family of four may be eligible for the Medicaid expansion regardless of age or health status. There is no deadline for Medicaid applications.

For an additional fee, short term and long term blood sugar levels can be measured. The Glyomark test screens for spikes in glucose levels after eating and the A1C test checks for risks of diabetes or pre-diabetes by testing glucose levels over the last three months.  For optimum blood test results, participants are encouraged to fast for four hours before attending Project Healthy Living.  Participants can order the cancer screening for the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) in men or the cancer antigen (CA-125) in women. Blood screenings for herpes 1 & 2 and hepatitis B are also available. Laboratory services are provided by Quest Diagnostics Laboratories.

Metropolitan Health Services of Belleville, Michigan will offer ultrasounds measuring blockage or weakening of the arteries and heart. The company will also offer the echocardiogram, abdominal aorta test, bone density and several other screening at many sites. Participants may contact Metropolitan Health Services at (734) 270-2469 to schedule an appointment.  For more information about specific packages, participants can visit www.MetropolitanHealthServices.org.

FastTrack, Project Healthy Living’s secure online pre-registration system is now open, allowing participants to register and pay for blood screenings in advance. FastTrack can be found by visiting www.ProjectHealthyLiving.org. Participants desiring blood screening services are asked to pre-register at least three days in advance of their planned visit to a Project Healthy Living event. The blood collection process is discreet, secure and confidential. Test results are mailed directly to the participant about a week after their visit.   For more information about the fee schedule, specific test availability, times and locations, call the Project Healthy Living hotline at (313) 531-9108.  The PHL hotline is operational Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

*UHO/PHL reserves the right to add and/or reschedule sites subject to change.
