The health fair is supported with the assistance of the Area Health Education Center, private sponsors, and other NMC and community volunteers.

Health fair activities will run from 8 a.m. until 12 noon and will also feature a 5k walk from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. Registration for the 5k walk will begin at 5:30 a.m. There is no fee to participate in either the Health Fair or the 5K walk.

“Our goal for this health fair is to promote on-island health resources for the public and to promote a healthier lifestyle,” said NMC Nursing Club president Kaiza Lucido. “This is also a wonderful opportunity for our community members because all of our screenings and services are free.”
