Valley Residential Services (VRS) and co-host Wasilla Area Seniors, Inc. (WASI) wishes to thank the Mat-Su Health Foundation and the United Way Mat-Su for their funding support in helping to bring about the 2nd annual Community Health Fair at the WASI facility Saturday, March 8th. Without their generous support, this public service would not have been possible.
This event featured a program produced by the Alaska Health Fair, Inc. which offered numerous health related exhibits and booths ranging from diabetes education to tobacco cessation and offered free services ranging from blood pressure taking to foot care. Low cost Blood chemistry tests were available and were very popular. Many volunteers from local agencies and groups manned the booths and stati0ns and provided the services at this fair. Their generousity of their time and experience was much appreciated, without which none of this event could have happened. Over 100 people attended the health fair, many expressing their appreciation for the event and a desire to attend the next annual fair.[nggallery id=7]
