Letter: Health Fair to offer lots of local help (July 27, 2022)


Taking care of ourselves and others is an important investment towards living a quality life.

One of the keys to that is having access to healthcare services, which can be both expensive and a frustrating process.

That is why I am encouraging everyone in our community to take advantage of and attend the upcoming Health Fair that happens right here at the Sweet Home High School on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This year’s event is free to everyone and will host a wide variety of health care services such as: Samaritan Health Services, Ridgeway Health, Linn Benton Housing Authority, Lumina Hospice & Palliative Care, Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence, SHIMS, Manna, 211 Emergency, Linn County Alcohol and Drug, Family Assistance and Resource Center, Medicare, Linn County Mental Health.

Again, this is a great no cost opportunity to find out about quality healthcare services that are available to you. Plus, there will be over 30 tables of information for you to have access to. So please come join us for this great event.
