What’s Happening: Health and Wellness Community Fair


The 9th Annual Health and Wellness Community Fair is happening this Saturday, Aug. 11 in Portsmouth.

The Hampton Roads Community Health Center is a proud sponsor of the event. Their goal is to provide free healthcare screenings to as many community members as possible.

Those screenings include blood pressure, diabetes, cervical cancer, HIV/AIDS, dental, even pap tests for uninsured women. There will also be consultants on site providing information on mental health care.

This event is not just for adults. There will be bounce houses, live music, face painting and corn hole. If you work up an appetite, there will be hot dogs and hamburgers hot off the grill to enjoy. The health center will also be giving out prizes, as well as school supplies for the first 100 kids who show up.

The Health & Wellness Community Fair is going down this Saturday, August 11, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Hampton Roads Community Health Center on Lincoln Street.
