On June 7, we attended the community health fair at St. Barbara’s Church in Massillon, Ohio. Plenty of vendors were on hand showcasing the programs and services they offer to the community. Everyone had free services or activities to offer attendees; from toothbrushes, to massages, to a hazardous waste demonstration for the kids. Summit Psychological Associates brought a bookmark craft for the kids and they had so much fun coloring and strategically placing stickers. We even had some adults join in on the fun!
While the kids may not have been interested in the various health services offered to the community, parents were able to talk to vendors about community mental health resources, mammogram screenings, dental care and more. These small community health fairs bring much needed awareness to health and wellness services available to residents. And we were happy to take part!
