Community Health Fair:
Sponsored by Keystone First & Amerihealth Caritas Partnership, The community health fair is an educational and interactive event designed to provide basic preventive and medical screenings to people in the community. With a wide variety of health screenings such as cholesterol, blood pressure, BMI and glucose participants will learn what health improvements they need to make to live a healthy lifestyle.
The Fox Chase Cancer Center-Temple Health Mobile Screening Unit will be on site to provide mammography screenings. The mobile mammography van brings breast screenings right into the community and provides and easy way for women to get their mammograms. Using digital mammography which offers very close pictures and also shows smaller growths that other types of x-rays don’t find, the pictures can be given directly to doctors for faster results.
