CARE Fair returns Friday and Saturday.
CARE Fair was started in 1992 to assist low income & uninsured people obtain vital health care services. Even after the introduction of the Affordable Care Act in 2014, there was still a 13% increase in attendees at last year’s event, showing there is still a need for health services to Utah’s most underprivileged populations. Organizers anticipate similar numbers at this weekend’s event.
Services provided at the 2015 CARE Fair will include: physical examinations; women’s examinations including breast exams & cervical cancer screenings; immunizations; dental exams with fluoride & sealant available for children; HIV/STD testing; diabetes & cholesterol screenings; vision & hearing screenings; mental health screenings; car seats & bike helmets (while available.)
Free child care will be provided and no appointment or proof of insurance is necessary.
