While having fun at the fair,children and adults were able to learn about health services provided to them by this medical center.
They include the Family Help Desk,which helps patients get medical insurance,and the Children’s Law Center,which provides free legal services for families.
The medical center also provides primary and urgent care to patients.
“We try to serve as a full-service medical home. This health fair helps families come by and learn more about the services that we provide because not every family needs every service,but not every family knows about every service that we provide,” Bellard said.
