MEDIA ADVISORY: Free Health Screenings at LA/Ontario International Airport Annual Health and Fitness Fair

ONTARIO, CA--(Marketwire - October 17, 2007) -


WHAT:   Medical professionals will offer free health screenings at the
        "2007 Healthy Harvest Hoedown" health and fitness fair held at
        LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT).  Types of tests include
        blood pressure checks, glucose and body fat testing, glaucoma,
        foot and back screenings.  The annual expo is open to the public.
        Admission is free.

        The interactive expo will feature exhibits to promote good health
        and public safety, free food samples, door prizes, free
        informational materials from local non-profit organizations, and
        entertainment.

        ONT is sponsoring a child identification system developed by
        NewsTalk 590 KTIE-AM.  KTIE will be on site to offer families a
        free SafeAssured ID child protection system for their children.
        Using proprietary software, computer, camera and microphone,
        parents compile information on a mini-CD that has the potential to
        help locate a missing child.  The mini-CD contains the child's
        photograph, video of the child, photos of the child's identifiable
        marks, voice recording, fingerprints, general physical description
        and other information.  Medical conditions, specific medications,
        pet names and nicknames can also be recorded.  Police can use the
        mini-CDs to send quality photographs to law enforcement agencies
        and media outlets immediately after a child is reported missing.
