June 24, 2014. On Saturday, June 28, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Appalachian Regional Healthcare System will present Health Splash, a free summer health fair. The fair will take place at the Sloop Medical Office Plaza on the campus of Cannon Memorial Hospital in Linville.
At the fair, guests will have the opportunity to try the Williams YMCA of Avery County for free, participate in free blood sugar and blood pressure checks, enjoy a healthy cookout, get the chance to win door prizes and receive EKG vouchers. The goal of the event is to provide information about the various health services available in Avery County.
This free event is brought to you by the Appalachian Regional Healthcare System and by the Williams YMCA of Avery County.
“This is the first year we are doing this event at Cannon,” said Gillian Baker, Vice President of Corporate Communications.
“It is free and open to the public, you don’t have to be a member of the Y, just come on our and see what it is all about.”
This event is an effort to let the Avery County Community know about all of the medical resources that the Appalachian Regional Healthcare System offers to citizens of the High Country.
