SNOHOMISH COUNTY--- Women of all ages are invited to attend the “Mothers and Others” health fair at Edmonds Community College on May 10. The free event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Triton Building.
Exhibitors will offer health-related information, resources and services ranging from skin care and “makeovers” to free screenings for bone density, blood pressure, and body composition. No-cost mammograms and Pap tests will be available by appointment for women who are eligible for the Breast and Cervical Health Program or the Susan G. Komen Foundation Mammogram Program. Eligibility is based on income, age and health risk.
Other topics of interest include smoking cessation, unintended pregnancy prevention, nutrition and fitness, domestic violence, sexual assault prevention, and massage.
“Women want to make informed decisions about their health,” said Daryl Goldfarb, Community Health Outreach Worker of Snohomish Health District. “Events such as ‘Mothers and Others’ gather a lot of different kinds of information and make it accessible in one place.”
The health fair is co-sponsored by Snohomish Health District, Women's Program of Edmonds Community College, and Positive Women’s Network. For general event information or to make an appointment for a mammogram or Pap test, please phone Daryl Goldfarb, 425.339.8667.
Established in 1959, the Snohomish Health District works to improve the health of individuals, families and communities through disease prevention, health promotion, and protection from environmental threats.
