Annual Community Health Fair Oct. 10th
The Shoals Community Clinic, in partnership with UNA Anderson College of Nursing & Health Professions, will be hosting its Annual Community Health Fair, Monday, October 10, 2022, from 9:00am - 2:00pm. Free flu shots will be available, along with screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol (with 6 hour fasting prior to testing), diabetes and pre-diabetes, respiratory function, hearing, and vision. Along with these screenings, health education will be provided for mental health, nutrition and wellness, and breast cancer awareness. UNA Nursing Students have conducted a food drive and will provide non-perishable food to participants as supplies last.
PREVENTATIVE HEALTH SCREENINGS SAVE LIVES
Regular health screenings and vaccinations prevent the onset of more serious disease. Chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes are frequently missed in general health visits and can become life threatening if left unchecked and untreated. The Shoals Community Clinic is a primary care facility that serves working age adults that do not have health insurance. Regular testing and treatment is a provided service to clinic patients. The health fairs help to promote good health and wellbeing for the entire community. This is an important part of the clinic's mission.
The Annual Community Health Fair is free to the entire community, and will be held at the Shoals Community Clinic, located at 309-B WC Handy Place in Florence, Alabama. For more information, please contact the clinic at (256) 760-4713.
