Health Fair 11 Community Health Screenings

 

Health Fair 11 Community is a program designed to give people easy access to basic health screenings. During warm weather months, nurses perform the health checks aboard a mobile bus. Last year, more than 4,600 blood pressure readings, glucose checks, cholesterol checks, and BMI assessments were performed aboard the Community bus.

Nurses perform free health screenings on board the Health Fair 11 Community bus.

Wanted: Host sites & events

Health Fair 11 Community 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 Community, 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.
