Attend the last Community Health Fair of the season

Health View
Valley View Hospital

Nearly 30 million Americans had diabetes in 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). What is even more alarming is that one-third of Americans living with diabetes do not know they have it. The consequences of having diabetes can be serious if left untreated.

The Community Health fair, Valley View’s volunteer-driven program, can help people learn their risk factors for diabetes and other health issues. The event is educational and interactive, providing invaluable information and screenings critical to living a healthy lifestyle. “This will be the conclusion of our 11th year brining inexpensive blood draws, educational resources and free health screenings to the Roaring Fork Valley,” states Lydia Senn, Health Quest Department coordinator. “The health of our community is important, and the services provided at the event empower people to take control of their risk factors,” says Senn.

The Community Health Fair will be held from 7-11 a.m. Saturday, May 2, at Glenwood Springs High School and consists of a variety of vendors and exhibitors that educate on all aspects of health, wellness, fitness and lifestyle improvements. Health information and testing is available to anyone older than 18, and no appointment is necessary. For more information, visit http://www.vvh.org/health-fairs or call 970-384-7566.
