Seniors and others can save on health care costs by taking advantage of free and low-cost screening available at Rim Country pharmacies and at events such as the spring Women’s Wellness Forum, the fall Community Health and Care Fair, and programs offered through the senior services groups such as the Payson Senior Center and Payson Regional Medical Center’s Senior Circle.
