Family HealthCare Network announces 18th annual Ivanhoe health fair
ivanhoe – Sometimes people should go to the doctor even when they do not feel well. For those folks, they need screenings, medications or just a simple checkup. But now instead of going to them, Family HealthCare Network is bringing doctors to you. Well at least those in Ivanhoe.
FHCN is pleased to announce its 18th Annual Ivanhoe Health and Safety Fair on Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 5-7 p.m. Presented in partnership with the Anthem Blue Cross, Champions for Change, Health Net, Ivanhoe Elementary School, Ivanhoe Lion’s Club, and Tulare County Gang Prevention Task Force’s Step Up program, community members are invited to join FHCN for the free event, which will take place at Ivanhoe Elementary School, located at 16030 Avenue 332.
For the health fair’s 18th year, FHCN staff will be onsite offering free health and dental screening services for adults and children, and vision screening services for children. FHCN has invited local agencies to attend the event to provide information on their services to the community. The evening will also include live entertainment by Ivanhoe Elementary school’s Fólklorico dance team, a free dinner provided by the Ivanhoe Lions Club, and raffle drawings provided by Step Up.
FHCN will also have Certified Educators and Certified Enrollment Counselors available to assist with any questions regarding enrollment into Covered California. For more information about FHCN’s Ivanhoe Health Fair, please contact Dulce Arellano, Community Health Representative at (559) 967-2161.
