Limited resources, including access to quality healthcare, are some of the challenges facing many during the economic downturn. To provide these vital services to the community and our neighbors, through health screenings, services and education, we’re proud to announce the date for Reach Out’s 9th Annual Community Health Fair.
Join Reach Out on Sunday, October 12, 2014 for the 9th Annual Community Health Fair from 9:00 am–2:00 pm at Sam Alba Park in Ontario, CA. This is a free event.
Open to all community members, Reach Out’s 9th Annual Community Health Fair offers food and services to the local communities for FREE: flu shots, fingerprinting for children, haircuts for children, immunizations for children, health screenings for the whole family, as well as assistance in finding a low-cost health insurance. Screenings and exams will be provided for asthma, diabetes, blood pressure, body mass index, flu vaccine, hearing, vision, and dental screenings. Health and wellness information will be available from over 70 providers as well as expert advice on housing, education, jobs and nutrition education. A Health Careers Education Village will offer information about health professions for youth and families.
With collaboration of nearly 100 community partners, Reach Out was able to serve over 2,500 community members at last year’s 8th annual health fair, and provide over 1,200 health screenings, immunizations, and over 70 provider and educational booths. The event is partnered and sponsored Kaiser Permanente.
