Oakhurst Medical, Walgreens and Compassionate Nurses Inc. will offer screenings for hypertension and blood sugar at the expo.

The new school year is just around the corner, and preparing for the back-to-school rituals can be hectic and stressful on parents. There is shopping for school supplies, clothes and shoes. There are immunizations to get and documents to gather for school registration.

Soon, blood pressure and blood sugar are soaring.

But not to worry – Oakhurst Medical Centers, Walgreens and Compassionate Nurses Inc. will offer screenings for hypertension and blood sugar at CrossRoadsNews’ July 26 Family & Back-to-School Expo at the Mall at Stonecrest.

The expo takes place between noon and 5 p.m. on the mall’s lower level between Dillard’s and Kohl’s.

Oakhurst Medical will not offer immunizations during the expo, but Tarri Johnson, the center’s community outreach manager, says it will have information about its Aug. 2 Back-to-School Fair, where it will offer immunizations and hearing and vision tests.

The mall is at Turner Hill Road and I-20. For more information, call 404-284-1888.
