Santa Maria Community Services, Inc. is pleased to announce its Fall Health Fair. The Free Health Fair will take place on Saturday, October 28, 2023, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at an all-new venue, ARCO Cincy located at 3301 Price Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45205. Bilingual volunteers will be on hand to provide free translation services for Spanish-speaking participants.

The Fall Health Fair is a free event open to the public and will provide attendees with a wide range of health and wellness resources. The fair will feature more than 25 local organizations and vendors, offering free health screenings, educational materials, and fun activities for all ages including trick-or-treating and surprises. Attendees can also receive nutrition, mental health, and financial wellness information.

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). The Health Fair will also include free food distribution, thanks to a partnership with the Freestore Foodbank, and a free hot meal to enjoy at the event courtesy of Jorge’s Tacos.

“Our Fall 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.
