The event is designed to provide free health screenings, awareness, and education to low-income individuals and families. Blood tests for the first 500 people will be provided by the laboratory team of Mission Regional Medical Center. A 12-hour fast is required for those interested in a blood screening.
The following free screenings and services that will be included at the Health Fair: bone density, cholesterol, diabetes, liver and kidney function, flu vaccines and much more.
“The clinical tests and health information we’re providing let people know if they’re on the right track with their health and wellness. We’re proud to be able to offer these services for free during the Annual Mission Community Health Fair,” said Nick Espinosa, MRMC business development and marketing director.
“We are happy to see our local organizations and Chamber business members coming together to help educate our community,” said Robert Rosell, GMCC president and CEO. “When local businesses come together and focus on the health of our residents, then we are making a big difference on the quality of life in Mission— and that’s important to us”
The event is made possible through the contributions of Mission Regional Medical Center, Shah Eye Center and Mission C.I.S.D.
