Health Fair 11 in the “Q”mmunity is a program designed to give people easy access to basic health screenings.

Wanted: Host sites & events

Health Fair 11 in the “Q”mmunity is looking to extend its free screenings program into the cold weather months.

Health Fair 11 is looking for community-based organizations to host our free screening services during the winter. Organizations should be dedicated to serving people who lack access to health care due to financial or insurance limitations. Ideal locations include community centers, library conference rooms, and other gathering spaces. Health Fair 11 is specifically looking for ways to connect with people who don’t have easy access to health services, lack health insurance, or are struggling to make ends meet.
