This year’s theme is “Path to Plate”. Many people do not realize the importance and relationship of what we eat and the affect on our overall health. Vendors will highlight this connection and how many chronic and deadly diseases can be prevented through healthy eating.
The purpose and goal of the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce Healthcare Committee and the Health and Fitness Fair is to educate Shelby County and the surrounding areas about health care resources available in the area and about their personal health. There will be a variety of health screenings available including glucose, cholesterol, bone density, spinal screenings, heart awareness, diabetes information, allergy testing information and vision.
Two mobile mammogram units will be onsite for mammograms. Thank you to Trinity Mother Frances and UT Health East Texas. All mammogram appointments must be made prior to March 13 by calling the Agri-Life Extension Offices at 936-598-7744. There is a charge for the mammograms and most health insurance is accepted.
Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center will be on site with a blood mobile taking donations. To sign up to donate please contact Shelby County Chamber of Commerce at 936-598-3682.
