Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s Health Fair a success!
Your local health fair is a great place to explore local healthcare resources and find information to help folks stay active and healthy. Boundary Community Hospital is hosting a Community Health Fair on Saturday, May 13 from 9 am to Noon. It’s an excellent opportunity to visit the hospital, take advantage of free tests, visit with local health vendors, talk with local emergency services (including a peek into a Life Flight helicopter), and support local health-related non-profit organizations. This year there will be a special area with Time Sensitive Emergency exhibits featuring trauma, stroke and heart attack.
