Pacers, Clarian Health offer free health screenings

The Indiana Pacers are bellowing out a call to change—one that goes far beyond its new-look basketball team. On Oct.
31, the
Pacers announced a partnership with Clarian Health to improve health awareness for area residents.

As part of the deal with Clarian, the Pacers are naming the Conseco Fieldhouse entry pavilion the Clarian Health Entry Pavilion.
Permanent health screening kiosks and health education displays will be installed in the pavilion, which will host monthly
health screenings.

The free screenings will occur on selected Thursdays not only at the fieldhouse, but also at other locations in Marion, Boone
and
Hamilton counties through May. Current and former Pacers players, coaches, Pacemates and mascots will be present.

The Pacers will also launch a program called "Bowser’s Riley Buddy Program" for each Pacers home game. A child who
is a patient
at Riley Hospital for Children will accompany Pacers mascot Bowser at a game and the child’s family will get free game tickets.

Clarian’s "A Call to Change" mantra was the official theme at the Pacers Nov. 1 home opener, and it’s a theme the
Pacers plan
to continue throughout the season.
