The Community Health Institute at Chattanooga State will host the “Eighth Annual Health, Fun, and Wellness Expo” Friday, March 6, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Health Science Center located on the Amnicola campus.
This is a large, comprehensive health fair that is open to the public offering numerous free health screenings, food, music and massages that includes exhibits from area health professionals and wellness-related organizations. Parking is free and easily accessible.
The Lions Club will be collecting used eyeglasses to help those in need at the event. In addition, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office will conduct “Operation Medicine Cabinet,” a drug take back program where the public may turn in unwanted medications for proper disposal to help keep medications out of the hands of children and our water supply. Those wishing to turn in medications can simply drive through the drop off circle without having to leave their vehicle. Pharmacists will also be available to answer questions.
