Despite the dreary weather on April 7th, the 2nd Annual TenderCare Clinic Health Fair turned out well. Over 20 vendors were set up in the high school gym, all passing out health-related materials and informing the community about services and resources in the area. In addition to the TenderCare tables (medical screenings, dental screenings, pharmacy information, insurance information, women’s health, mental health, and preschool), a wide variety of organizations were present to promote healthy lifestyles. Many people were interested in the interactive stations that encouraged them to take a part in their own health: the common allergen screenings by The Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Center, the rapid HIV testing by the Northeast Health District, and the chiropractic screenings by Franks Chiropractic Life Center. The sponsors of the health fair were also at the event: Oconee Cancer Care (gold), Humana (silver), and St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital (bronze).
TenderCare Clinic aims to host the health fair every spring to bring awareness to the community about the importance of health. Being knowledgeable about the resources available to you is crucial to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As always, TenderCare Clinic has multiple services and locations to take care of families in the community. All insurances are accepted including Medicare and Medicaid, and discount program is available for eligible patients.
