MedicAlert Foundation is hosting a Community Health and Safety Fair this Saturday, September 29th, from 10am to 3pm. The event will take place at MedicAlert, located a 2323 Colorado Avenue, in Turlock. The fair will include free medical screenings, healthy living demonstrations, and entertainment for people of all ages.
Over 2,000 people attended last year’s event, while this year’s event aims to be bigger and bolder, adding to the mix more robust health/safety demonstrations, screenings and even live entertain from musical acts across Stanislaus County.
“MedicAlert prides itself on being the most dependable, intelligent, and trust emergency support network,” stated Andrew Wigglesworth, President and CEO of the MedicAlert Foundation. “Welcoming Central Valley residents to our campus is a way to promote health within our community, and is a way to educate our neighbors of the value of taking care of oneself.”
Health Screenings and Clinics include blood pressure, cholesterol, balance, vision and hearing screenings, nutrition/cooking demonstrations, and a teddy bear clinic for children. If attendees plan to participate in the teddy bear clinic for children, participants are asked to bring their own teddy bear to the event.
Other features include a car seat/seat belt safety check, police cars and fire trucks, safety trainings and demonstrations, live music, antique cars, a bounce house, face painting, a farmers’ market, a car show, and various food vendors.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (888) 633-4298 or visit www.medicalert.org/landing/fair.htm.
