Health Fair

Dear Editor:

From all the conversations I have heard regarding this year’s 9-Health Fair, it was the best ever. I always look forward to this community event as I see folks I never see any other time of the year and that is a comment I hear from many. I hope the community will continue to offer and support this wonderful service as there is no other screening that is this comprehensive — it screens for multiple disorders, some of them rare, not yet symptomatic; in fact, it was the Health Fair results that led to the rare diagnosis that saved my husband’s life a few years ago. Add to that all of the additional free health services available at the fair and you have an event like none other.

So, thank you to the many volunteers and to the large numbers of folks who came and took advantage of this opportunity. Look forward to seeing you again next year. In the meantime, take care of yourselves.
