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.

For more information on Health Fair 11 in the “Q”mmunity, email healthfair@kare11.com.  For additional information on Health Fair 11, visit its website www.HealthFair11.org.

Please note that Health Fair 11 is not able to fulfill all appearance requests. Selection of host organizations and sites will be determined by Health Fair 11 sponsors and Southside Community Health Services.
