24th Annual Senior Health Fair
Posted on Thursday, April 05, 2012

North Hawaii Community Hospital’s 24th Annual North Hawai’i Senior Health Fair, normally held in November, has moved to Sunday, May 20th, 2012, to support National Senior Health and Fitness Day. 

This annual event offers a variety of free health screenings and education to North Hawai‘i seniors who are 55 years and older. This health fair is often the only time seniors in our community have the opportunity to receive health screenings by physicians, registered nurses and other medical professionals, who graciously donate their time and services.  This event is one of two annual events held by North Hawaii Community Hospital to help fulfill our mission “to improve the health status of the people of North Hawaii by improving access to care and providing high quality services at a reasonable cost.”  

Complimentary health screenings offered at this event include: cholesterol, glucose, oral screenings, hearing tests, stroke risk assessments, skin checks, eye screenings, holistic care services, foot screenings, blood pressure, blood tests by Clinical Laboratories of Hawai‘i and more.   Health education will also be available to North Hawai‘i seniors by the following vendors: Tutu’s House, Hawai‘i Fire Department, Chiropractor, Kohala Home Health Care, Clinical Laboratories of Hawai‘i, Diabetes Wellness Center, Foodland, Legal Shield, Sleep Disorder Center, Ho'oNani Place, Hawaii Island Beacon Community and more.

Thanks to the generous support of several local businesses, seniors will also enjoy a complimentary lunch, bingo, music by 'A'oia and door prizes.  This wonderful community event is also support by a grant from the Richard Smart Fund of the Hawai‘i Community Foundation.

Spread the word, mark your calendars and join us on Sunday, May 20th from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in front of the Lucy Henriques Medical Center at 67-1123 Mamalahoa Hwy, Kamuela, HI for North Hawaii Community Hospital’s 24th Annual Senior Health Fair.
