For several years, the Zonta Club of Oneida has sponsored the AMBA (Annual Metathasic Blood Analysis) Wellness program, a blood screening program that serves as a community service as well as a fundraiser.
A comprehensive battery of blood tests is available for $41, payable by check or money order made out to AMBA. No cash, please. Proof of identity is required. This service is not covered by health insurance, so if you don’t have health insurance, this is a much more affordable opportunity to have your blood tested.
Pre-authorization by your physician is required, but in the past, the club has found physicians are willing to give approval to their patients for this worthwhile program.
We now hold this event twice a year, in September and in March.Our upcoming AMBA program will be Saturday, September 18th at the Canastota American Legion located at 325 S. Peterboro Street.
Appointments are available from 7 to 10 a.m. Call 1-800-234-8888 Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Provide your physician’s name and address at the time of the call.
The Zonta Club does request a $5 sponsor fee at the time of the screening. This money is used to fund educational scholarships for women in our community.
