Health Fair A Success

The Executive Director of the Red River Council on Aging terms last week’s Health Fair a tremendous success.  “We had over 100 people take part.  That is a lot,” said Liz Cannon.

The health fair is back after a two year hiatus caused by the pandemic.  The Jack and Laura Social Center on Front Street was crowded with exhibitors representing multiple medical disciplines.

Among the vendors were Christus Coushatta, Albertson’s Pharmacy, Louisiana Behavioral Health, the Louisiana Ag Center, Lifepath Hospice, Louisiana Commission for the Deaf, The DeSoto Police Jury, and many others.

Visitors to the Health Fair received helpful information about maintaining good health and a healthy lifestyle.  They also had an opportunity to get various blood test done, have their vision screened, and even receive pneumonia and shingles vaccinations.

And everyone left with a huge goodie bag full of information, candy, chips, pens and pencils.  A lot of useful things and a few fun things too.

Cannon was excited by the turnout.  She said, “The Health Fair is Back!”
