Blood Screening 
John Deere Ottumwa Works will offer a 23-panel blood screen to all of our retirees and their spouse on 14, 16 and 17 October 2014.
This screen will test the function of the liver, kidneys, thyroid, lipid panel (cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL and LDL, blood sugar and ferritin (iron stores)). Many diseases are detected early on the basis of these tests before they become a problem. We hope you all will join us for this opportunity to make you aware of what your body is doing.
This blood screen will be offered at a cost of $10.00 per person and does require a 12 hour fast. Water and normal medication can be taken, but you must not have any food for 12 hours prior to the test. This screen is available to all retired John Deere employees and their spouse.  
Below are detailed hours and dates for the screening at the Union Hall (205 N. James Street). To avoid prolonged waiting, please follow this alphabetical schedule:
