Health fair attracts audience

(Continued)

About 100 people had registered midway through the event Saturday.

A secondary goal of the event is to promote opportunities for careers and education in health care.

“Health care will continue to be a major employer going forward. This is a good opportunity for us to bring people in and talk to people who everyday do the job and get a real-world lesson and hear from the professionals as to what they do everyday,” Blythe added.

Discounted blood work vouchers for $30, along with free screenings to check blood pressure, diabetes, etc., were also provided.
