Low-cost blood screenings, free vision screenings, and free blood pressure screenings were offered to participants along with educational resources about a range of topics. Health topics covered included organ donation, stroke and heart attack symptoms, substance use prevention, respiratory care, and more.

“We host health fairs like these to further our mission of enhancing the health of the communities we serve,” said Melissa Lockwood, Chief Administrative Officer of Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital. “We are proud to partner with local organizations to educate and expand access to healthcare in our rural area.”
