Family Health & Safety Fair 2016

On August 23, we’ll be hosting our third annual Family Health and Safety Fair. The event focuses on providing free health screenings, information, and resources on a variety of health-related topics like insurance, dental care, women’s health, and more. RSVP to our Facebook event for full details and updates

At the fair you can expect to find information, services, and fun for the whole family. This is a kid-friendly event, and there will be food, prize drawings, children’s activities, and more!

 “Last year we had over 30 organizations represented and over 200 students and their families attended,” said Seattle Goodwill Job Training and Education Instructor and event organizer Gia Ledsma said of the upcoming event, “With the help of our partners, we were able to offer dozens of free health screenings, healthcare enrollment, and several free dental services. We hope to offer even more this year.”

The fair takes place at our Administrative Offices, located at 700 Dearborn Place South, at the corner of S. Dearborn St. & Rainier Ave S. It is easily accessed on the #7 bus and #9 bus, with many more public transportation options running within half a mile of the location. Get directions here.

There will be free health screenings for diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, and body mass index (BMI). There will also be many presenting booths and organizations with recourses and presentations on medical coverage, dental information and services, diabetes, breast cancer and more. We’ll also be providing information on how to get a free mammogram and pap test for women ages 40 and older.

If your business or organization would like to get involved, contact us!

THANK YOU to our partners: Susan G. Komen Puget Sound, Molina Healthcare, Latinos Promoting Good Health, and Medical Teams International.
