The 2021 Health Fair is on track for Saturday, Oct. 23 from 9 a.m. to noon. There will be exhibitors and screeners at both the SaddleBrooke One and MountainView Clubhouses. Free shuttles will transport people between clubhouses. As in the past, fairgoers park at the MountainView parking lot and use the shuttle to visit exhibits at SaddleBrooke One.
Desert Life Pharmacy and Walgreen’s on First Avenue will provide immunizations, including flu, pneumonia, shingles, and more. State, county, and SaddleBrooke community COVID guidelines will be respected.
Many familiar exhibitors will participate. The University of Arizona pharmacy students provide free tests, including sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol. You will find the pharmacy students to be knowledgeable, conscientious, and helpful. The Health Fair is pleased to welcome them back.
Dr. Sheftel and his skillful team from Healthy Skin Dermatology will once again conduct free skin cancer screenings. This life-saving service has often helped someone identify a serious problem that requires follow-up.
We expect about 50 exhibitors representing the selection of medical and health facilities available here in the area. It is an excellent time to learn more about medical providers, senior facilities, specific health issues, as well as Medicare and financial services.
The Health Fair is a volunteer-driven event. It takes well over 100 people willing to donate a little time to make the fair run smoothly. The 2021 Health Fair is open to both SaddleBrooke and SaddleBrooke Ranch residents. Contact Dave Mersy, volunteer coordinator, at [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering.
