CBHA is kicking off National Health Center Week with the annual Othello
Community Health Fair on Saturday, August 11th from 1 – 5 pm at the Othello Clinic. “We want to make it a
whole family event that is fun, interactive, and full of information and
activities for kids, their parents, and community members,” said
Cindi Hogeboom, Early Intervention Services Supervisor.
Hogeboom said one of the goals in holding the health fair is to make the
public aware of the many services offered by CBHA clinics as well as many
local community service providers and agencies who have been invited to
participate. “From local child development centers, healthcare providers,
massage and chiropractic services providers, colleges and universities,
job training programs, to domestic violence prevention, local health department,
and the Othello Community hospital, we have approximately 40 resources
from the community participating in the health fair this year, including
New Hope, the Othello Police Explorers and Othello EMS,” Hogeboom said.
There will be free health and vision screenings, child developmental screenings,
information about oral care, breastfeeding, as well as many other wellness
and prevention topics to promote healthy lifestyles. Local volunteers
will be making snow cones for the community! The Othello Community Health
Fair is an excellent opportunity for community members to learn about
the many resources available to them in our community and the surrounding areas.
“We invite the whole community to stop by and join in the fun.”
