Santa Maria Community Services, Inc. is thrilled to announce its Spring Health Fair. The Free Health Fair will take place on Saturday, April 15, 2023, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Price Hill Recreation Center located at 959 Hawthorne Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45205. Bilingual volunteers will be on hand to provide free translation services for Spanish-speaking participants.
The Spring Health Fair is a free event that is open to the public and will provide attendees with a wide range of health and wellness resources. The fair will feature more than 30 local organizations and vendors, offering free health screenings, educational workshops, and fun activities for all ages. There will be an activity corner for children and a special baby room with resources for new parents including baby clothes and other giveaways. Attendees can also receive information on nutrition, mental health, and financial wellness.
The event features free health screenings, including blood pressure, plus glucose testing and Body Mass Index (BMI) calculations as well as HIV and STD testing through Caracole. St. Elizabeth Healthcare is providing mammograms at no cost. Attendees may call 513-557-7266 for a mammogram appointment (English or Spanish). Healthy Moms and Babes and IDEA Public Schools will be providing community resources along with many other organizations. The Health Fair will also include free produce distribution, thanks to a partnership with the Freestore Foodbank, and a free hot meal to enjoy at the event courtesy of Jorge’s Taco Truck.
“Our Spring Health Fair is a testament to our commitment to improving the health and wellness of the communities we serve,” said H.A. Musser, CEO of Santa Maria Community Services, Inc. “We are proud to partner with local organizations and vendors to offer free health screenings and fun activities for all ages. We are particularly excited to be able to again offer free translation services for Spanish-speaking participants.
