Hospital Health Fair Set
Alameda Hospital’s annual Community Health Fair will be held this Saturday, Oct. 22, from 9 a.m. to noon. The event looks to provide opportunities for the public to improve their health.
Free flu shots for teens 14 years of age and older, free bike helmets for children under 12 years of age plus health screenings and activities for all ages will be provided. The hospital and other organizations who are dedicated to the health and well being of the Alameda community will be on hand to provide information and help.
Billed as Alameda’s premier health and wellness event of the year, The fair offers kids the chance to create a KidSafe Photo ID, tour emergency vehicles, learn about healthy eating and more. Adults can receive free flu shots while supplies last, as well as blood glucose testing for diabetes, blood pressure checks, and a quick-look EKG. Exhibitors will also provide information on stroke, cancer and injury prevention, healthy nutrition and senior safety. For a fee, the public can receive cholesterol and osteoporosis screenings.
