- 2016 Health Fair -

MCRC has partnered with over 90 health organizations to ensure that the concerns of the family, as well as the community itself, are available. This year’s health screenings will include, but are not limited, to kidney, blood glucose, immunizations, pregnancy testing and free mammograms for uninsured women ages 40-64. Along with the screenings, health and nutrition education, housing, financial services and other community resources will be available.

“The purpose of this event is to increase health awareness by providing health screenings, activities, materials, demonstrations, and information; increase awareness of local, state, and national health services and resources; motivate participants to make positive health behavior changes; provide immunizations for children and adults; teach self-care practices; identify topics and participants for future extension educational health programs; and establish extension agents as a source for educational health programming in the metropolitan area," states Marie Frasure, Community Outreach Director.

Once participants have been screened and have visit exhibitors on the inside, there will be food and plenty of family oriented activities featured on the outside with entertainment, games, prizes, face painting, animal balloons, funnel cakes and much more beginning at noon.

“The Dr. Norge W. Jerome Passport to Good Health Fair will kick start our health and nutrition initiatives scheduled to begin this summer. It is our desire to promote community engagement and support for individuals/families in need to facilitate healthy lifestyles,” said Executive Director, Pamela Smart. MCRC™
