2012 Marshfield Laboratories Wellness Center Services Order Form

           Must be a registered Convention attendee to participate
         Please use this form to pre-register for your health screenings and vaccinations.
Supported by Marshfield Labs, any paid conference registrant over 18 will have access to health screens and vaccinations at the
Wellness Center.

By pre-registering, you will receive first priority for preferred times. Those not pre-registered may do so on site; however, pre-
registered attendees will have first priority.

Your confirmation of payment, ticket for the selected test/vaccinations, and a release form will be in your Convention Registration
packet. It is the registrant’s responsibility to check in at the Wellness Center during the preferred time that was selected.

Fees are comparable (if not lower!) than going to your physician’s office. We are not able to forward forms to process claims with
your insurance company; however you will receive confirmation of payment that can be used to submit your claim. All test results
will be mailed directly to the address indicated on this form.
