Nazko Health Centre to host annual health fair

The event is free and includes lunch

The Nazko Health Centre is hosting its annual health fair on Wednesday, June 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Nazko Community Hall.

The event is free and open to anyone. In addition to between 20 and 25 booths set up around the hall, there will also be a free lunch served and face painting for the children in attendance.

The event will feature a NARCAN booth, a sexual health booth, someone to discuss the importance of clean well water (he’ll be bringing a well water anti-septic simulator) and the Northern Health bus will also be available for tours.

Amber Lloyd, who works in community and family support for Nazko Health, says she thinks they’ve “got lots of really positive stuff happening.”

They’re expecting approximately 100 attendees throughout the day.
