Unalaskans Have a Wealth of Health at the 2018 Health Fair

Mar 8, 2018

Aleutian Family Dentistry offer up samples of toothpaste to a young brusher.

The 2018 Unalaska Health Fair was held Saturday, March 2nd at the elementary school gym from 1pm-4pm. 

This year, health fair activities included CPR demonstrations, tobacco cessation information, cholesterol screening, oral health tips, prayer and healing, eye screening, suicide prevention, massages and many other activities.

In the afternoon, all were welcome to attend an APIA Financial Health Workshop and an Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium Suicide Prevention Training. The afternoon ended with a complimentary dinner from 5pm-6pm.

Participants were given "passports" and each organization present had a special stamp for the signature booklets. Participants who completed the entire passport were entered into a drawing for a prize at the end of the day.

Aleutian Lifeline gives a short quiz on the preliminary CPR steps in exchange for a passport stamp.

Thanks to all of the organizations that contributed to the 2018 Unalaska Health Fair!
