Harvest Health Fair

On Saturday, September 16, 2017, Ellenville Regional Hospital, The Institute for Family Health’s Ellenville Family Health Center and the Ellenville-Wawarsing Youth Commission hosted its Annual Harvest Health Fair. Many community members came out on this bright and sunny day to enjoy the festivities! There were free health screenings for blood pressure, depression & anxiety and blood sugar (glucose). Attendees met with a doctor and a pharmacist, and received information and resources for parents, diabetics, and those seeking to eat healthier! They also received dental information with free dental gifts as well as health insurance screenings and enrollment. There were free apples, donuts and cider along with lots of games and activities for the whole family to participate in, such as ambulance and fire truck tours, pumpkin decorating, fall crafts, face painting, music, and a bouncy house! Plus, there was a raffle to win one of two Echo Dots as well as a Dental raffle! We would like to thank the Ellenville Police Department and the Ulster County Sheriff’s Department for the free bike helmets and child passenger safety seat checks, too! It was a great Harvest Health Fair, and we look forward to celebrating again next fall!
