JASC has always sought to provide relevant and meaningful programs to help ensure the well-being of its aging core population. As a natural extension of this aspect of JASC’s mission, programs and services are either offered free of charge or at a nominal fee, and are available to anyone.
For over 20 years, JASC has hosted health screenings once a year for all ages 18 and over. Blood pressure, blood screening tests, and advice on nutrition and other health- and fitness-related topics are offered. A doctor is on hand to offer further consultation and advice.
The basic screening is a blood chemistry test that will screen for diabetes; cholesterol; liver function; kidney function; electrolytes including potassium and calcium; iron; and blood counts. This test typically costs $100-200 when performed in a doctor’s office.
General health information will be available on cancer, mammograms and cardiovascular conditions. In addition to the Basic Screening test, tests for Prostatic Specific Antigen, Heliobactor Pylori-IgG, and Glycohemoglobin will be offered.

Inoculations are given each fall under the auspices of the Walgreen’s Pharmacy department. There is a nominal administrative fee that varies by year, or, flu shots are free with a Medicare Part B card.
