We are excited to offer various community events like the health fair to the residents of Clay County, said Hurriyat Ghayyur, Director of Marketing at the hospital.

At the fair, participants learned about heart health, women's health, diabetes control and prevention, smoking cessation, stress management, maintaining a healthy weight, exercise and fitness and much more.

Health screenings such as blood pressure and blood sugar etc. were done on the spot by the hospital team. Encouraging people to get screened and lead a healthier lifestyle is a very important part of what we do, said Ghayyur. The earlier you know if there are any problems, the earlier they can be addressed.
