Event Description

March 24, 2016 Updated Mar 28, 2016 at 10:35 AM EDT

Focus on Health’s community-wide health fair event is scheduled April 13-16 & April 20-23.

These health fairs are at locations in Allen county and open to persons 18 years of age and older.
Focus on Health provides FREE health checks including blood pressure, vision, height/weight/BMI, and bone density. Free hearing, foot and balance testing will be at selected locations.

A variety of health & wellness “learning stations” will be accessible at all locations. Plan to take a few moments to speak with a health care professional or representative on a wide variety of medical topics or services. A Learning Center is not simply an exhibit booth, but basically a hands-on visual learning experience designed to motivate, educate and improve one's health through information ranging on disease prevention tips to daily healthy living tips!
Focus on Health is a community affairs project of the Midwest Alliance for Health Education, a non-for-profit organization sponsored by Parkview and 21Alive.
