Valparaiso, IN – HealthLinc will host Health & Wellness Fairs at area clinics from July 26 – August 8.  Each year, the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) dedicates time to recognizing community health centers throughout the country.   This year’s theme, Celebrating America’s Health Centers:  Rooted In Communities, emphasizes the important role health centers play in providing access to affordable, high-quality, cost-effective health care to everyone, including those most in need.

The HealthLinc Health & Wellness Fairs will offer no-cost well child checks and sports physicals for the uninsured on the day of the events.  The events will also include entertainment, games, and activities with prizes, food, and fun.  Those kids who attend receive a backpack with school and health supplies (while supplies last) to help them get the school year off to a great start.

“Our goal is to make sure that children have access to low-cost and no-cost check-ups, so they start the school year off right,” states Beth Wrobel, CEO.  “We know that healthy kids miss less school and learn better and we are proud to help make that happen.”
