Dr Oz: Free Health Clinic in Chicago: Health Expo Chicago Nov 8

By on November 24, 2010

Dr Oz setup the largest free clinic ever for the first time last year in Houston, Texas.  But this year on November 8, 2010, Doctor Oz setup another Free Health Clinic in Chicago, Illinois to take care of people and to inform them of their 5 critical numbers.  If you do not know about the Dr Oz Know Your 5 Lifesaving Numbers, then please read this recap by clicking here: Dr Oz Know Your 5! Dr Oz Free Clinic

Dr Oz Health Expo Chicago

In Houston, Dr Oz’s Free Clinic saw 1,700 people in just 12 hours.  This year, the Dr Oz Health Expo in Chicago turned the Millennium Park into their screening arena, and the turnout was huge – with lines of people stretching all around the block.

Dr Oz Know Your 5

In case you do not remember Dr Oz’s Know Your 5, here is the list:

– Weight

– Waist Size

– Blood Sugar

– Cholesterol

– Blood Pressure

If you do not know these five numbers, then please try to see your doctor to check-up on your health.

Dr Oz said that some people who came to the Free Health Clinic had not had medical attention in years.  One man told Dr Oz that it had been 16 years since he saw a doctor.  Some people found out good news and were healthy, while others got bad news.  One woman’s blood pressure was so low that she had to be rushed to the emergency room.

Dr Oz spoke to a young overweight mother who weighed 411 pounds, had blood sugar of 144 (this should be under 100), was hypertensive and Diabetic.  If she had all of these issues in her early 30’s, she would be even worse in just a few years.

Dr Oz reminded us to give thanks for the great gift of health, and I think an amazing gift to give our loved ones this holiday season would be a checkup to make sure that everyone Knows The 5 lifesaving numbers on Dr Oz’s list!

Comments to Dr Oz: Free Health Clinic in Chicago: Health Expo Chicago Nov 8

  1. Just wanted to praise Dr. Oz for advice on Rosacea. It’s been a huge part of my life for the last couple years and has scarred my face. I took his advice and never use soap and drink green tea and my skin is great. I’m so excited that this actually worked. An added thing i do is wash my face with baby wipes and it feels great and there is no itchiness whatsoever!!
    So, so happy
