Parish hosts free health fair
St Charles Church hosts a free health fair from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday, March 3.
Sponsored by the Northeast Neighborhood Nurses, the event will include free vaccines for ages 11 and older (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, pneumonia and influenza) and testing for diabetes, glaucoma, vision, hearing and blood pressure. Experts will provide healthy living demonstrations, health education and referral information, much of it geared toward those without health insurance.
Visitors can get free minor bike repairs and purchase bike helmets for $5, which will be fitted by professionals. Free acupuncture will also be offered.
Fun activities will include face painting, a fire truck to explore, relaxing massages, prizes and more.
The church is at 2310 NE 42nd Ave. For more information, contact Alice McCarthy at 503-282-8828 or [email protected]
