“This health fair is often the only time seniors in our community have the opportunity to receive health screenings by physicians, registered nurses and other medical professionals,” says Lowell Johnson, NHCH Interim CEO. “This event provides complimentary health screenings and wellness education to nearly 300 seniors 55+ in North Hawai‘i,” says Johnson.

This event is one of two annual events hosted by North Hawaii Community Hospital to help fulfill its mission “to improve the health status of the people of North Hawaii by improving access to care and providing high quality services at a reasonable cost. The other event is Girls Night Out, held in October, to promote breast cancer awareness.

Complimentary health screenings offered at this event include: oral screenings, hearing tests, stroke risk assessments, skin checks, eye screenings, holistic care services, blood pressure, blood tests for cholesterol and glucose by Clinical Laboratories of Hawai‘i and more. Health education will also be available to North Hawai‘i seniors by the following vendors: Tutu’s House, County of Hawai‘i Fire Department, North Hawai‘i Hospice, NHCH’s Kohala Home Health Care, NHCH’s Rehabilitation Services, NHCH’s Waimea Women’s Center, Clinical Laboratories of Hawai‘i, Ho’onani Place and more.

NHCH’s 25th Annual Senior Health Fair, formerly held in November, has moved to Sunday, May 19th, 2013 to support National Senior Health and Fitness Day.
