It’s back and has something for the entire family! The Boundary Community Hospital Health Fair is set for Saturday, May 12, from 9am to noon. With more than 60 vendors and exhibits and on-site health screenings, you can’t afford to miss this!
For a community of our size, we are surely blessed to have such amazing medical services available. This is a perfect opportunity to educate yourself about those services and learn more about your options when it comes to your and your family’s health.
Some of the exhibit areas at this year’s event will include a mountain-trail safety clinic that will provide mountain-trail safety tips; how one can be prepared for an emergency, providing information on starting the conversation about advance directives; and one that the kids are sure to enjoy—time-sensitive emergencies, which will feature the Life Flight Network medical transport helicopter and the Boundary ambulance. Be sure to be there by 9:30am as that is when the Life Flight helicopter plans to land!
To start off the morning, there is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy the spring weather with a 3k, 5k or 10k Family Fun Run / Walk—something in which the entire family can participate.
Registration for this is free and begins on May 1. One can either visit the website BoundaryCommunityHospital.org or stop in at Outpatient Services to pick up a form. If you choose to register the day of the event, that will begin at 7am next to the helipad on Kaniksu Street, with the event beginning at 8am. The first 70 people to register will receive a free T-shirt. There will also be T-shirts available to purchase the day of the event.
Don’t miss out! Mark your calendars and make it a day of fun!
