Senior Health Fair

North Hawaii Community Hospital's (NHCH) 26th Annual North Hawaii Senior Health Fair is on Sunday, May 18th, 2014, to support National Senior Health and Fitness Day and our hospital's 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.” 

We expect over 250 seniors will enjoy complimentary health information, services and screenings, including blood tests by Clinical Laboratories of Hawaii. Plus, enjoy a complimentary lunch, bingo and door prizes!

This event 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.
