The Mother Lode Fairgrounds in Sonora continues to be a busy spot today as the 38th annual Tuolumne County Adult Health Fair will continue until 3 PM.
Kathy Amos, Tuolumne County Health Fair Coordinator was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Health information is being dispersed at an estimated 120 booths spread throughout four buildings and along the outside sidewalks. Several organizations work together to put on the popular event.
There will again be a variety of screenings, including height, weight, vision and blood pressure. Flu shots will also be available. The event is free of charge but there is a $25-fee for those wishing to take part in the blood screening. The fair runs from 7 AM-3 PM. There is also an early bird blood draw, until 7 AM, for those just wanting the blood screening.
Among the new offerings this year are educational sessions in the Sierra Building featuring speakers on a variety of health related topics.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45 on AM 1450 and FM 102.7 KVML.
