Kent County Health Fair Set for October


The annual event to promote community wellness will take place on October 20, 2016, at the Kent County High School.  Normally held in the Spring, HomePorts is this year partnering with Kent County Public Schools and is hold in the event in the Fall, when flu shots can be offered. Major sponsors include the University of Maryland Shore Regional Health System and the Kent County Health Department.

The health fair, which is free and open to the public, will highlight the latest health, wellness and safety information. It is a one-stop opportunity for busy individuals and families of all ages to get health information, free screenings and assessments, and to connect with a variety of community organizations and resources. Local health care professionals and community exhibitors will be on hand to provide their expertise and guidance, with a number of speakers offering valuable information on a variety of common health care concerns.

As a local nonprofit organization serving the aging population in Kent County, HomePorts understands the importance of health care, preventive medicine, and playing an active role in the community.  Kent County strives to be a “community for a lifetime.” The aging population depends on a community that maintains positive health and well-being. Having ready access to preventive health screenings, wellness programs and current information on health issues is critical for all ages.
