35th Annual Lower Valley Health Fair Offer Variety of Services Saturday

The City of El Paso Department of Public Health (DPH), as well as 80 other agencies will be offering numerous testing, screenings, and health information opportunities this weekend as a part of the Lower Valley Health Fair.

Now in its 35th year, the event will include everything from blood sugar and cholesterol testing to immunizations and hearing and vision screenings.

The event is organized by the Lower Valley School Nurses Association and will take place on Saturday, April 8th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Socorro High School, located at 10150 Alameda.

More than 2,000 people are expected to attend and local talent from the various school districts and the community will provide entertainment throughout the day.

“I am proud to be a longtime member of the planning committee for this event,” said Mario Hernandez, Public Health Educator. “We know that there are many in our community who may not otherwise have access to the services offered at this health fair, or who may not know what services the Department of Public Health offers.”

The following DPH programs are scheduled to participate this upcoming weekend: 2-1-1 Texas, HIV Prevention/MPowerment, Rawlings Pediatric Dental Clinic, WIC, Immunizations, Medicaid Waiver, Public Health Preparedness (Zika Prevention), Eat Well! El Paso, and the Tobacco Prevention Program.
