This free event is to give thanks to the community for 48 years of support. The health fair will feature many local health vendors which provide health services, screenings and educational materials on important health issues that affect the community.

Health screenings can help prevent as well as treat undiagnosed health issues such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Through routine screenings, many diseases can be detected early and cured long before any symptoms develop.

That is why awareness is extremely important and the key to good health. Hobbs Pharmacy’s FREE health fair is a great service to the community.


Vendors Will Present Valuable Information

Services being offered include flu, pneumonia and shingles vaccines, screenings for blood pressure, blood sugar, and hearing.  YouScript ® will be onsite to offer DNA drug metabolism testing.
