Blue Mountain Health System and Palmerton Lions Club will co-sponsor a community health fair from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 21 at the Palmerton Hospital cafeteria on Lafayette Avenue in Palmerton.
The health fair will include several health assessments, health screenings, chair massages, and opportunities to meet with representatives from the Blue Mountain Health System and agencies from Carbon County and surrounding communities.
Information and education on a variety of health-related topics and services will be available. There will also be chances to win one of several $25 gift certificates/door prizes (one awarded every half-hour) for the Fireline Hotel.
This health fair is open to all ages and there is no charge to participate.
Community members are encouraged to donate their used eyeglasses or hearing aids during this event. A box will be available to place them in at the registration table.
