Planning for this year’s Dr. Daly Days Community Health Fair event is currently in the works, with a date of Saturday, June 21, set for the annual event at Lake District Hospital.
This year’s event theme is “Health is Wealth,” and will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. throughout the hospital campus.
The event also serves as the opening weekend for the Lakeview Saturday Market.
Among the highlights for this year’s events are health screenings such as blood pressure and glucose and lipid panels, along with cholesterol and triglyceride levels from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. for a $25 lab fee. Fasting is required for those participating in these screenings.
Vendors at the event will showcase services ranging from community-based offerings to health and emergency services, along with nutrition information.
New vendors this year include Advantage Dental and Relief Chiropractic.
Gary and Shelley McCleese will be preparing barbecue tri-tip for lunch, and a kid-friendly zone will feature a bounce house, jousting, face painting and numerous giveaways.
Throughout the day, a number of door prizes will be given away, as well, including a barbecue grill, a pair of Adirondack chairs and a Samsung 7” tablet.
Other key attractions will include free mini massages by Abby’s Healing Hands and sales in the Sunshine Gift Shop of up to 20 to 40 percent off.
