NBC 10: 12th Annual Chester Community Fair and Book Bag Giveaway

WCAU-TV | August 10, 2017.

Keystone First and the Better Living Center will host a community fair and book bag giveaway to promote wellness with on-site health screenings and mental health support, while also helping children in need prepare for the coming school year; up to 1,000 book bags filled with school supplies will be donated, courtesy of event sponsors. Note: Keystone First will provide the community with blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), and glucose screenings.

The health fair will take place on Sunday, August 13, from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the Better Living Center, 501 Yarnall Street, Chester, Pa.

These types of events not only help to bring the community together, but they also allow people to interact on a more personal level with health experts outside of the office or hospital. A change of scenery or perspective often provides the comfort necessary for someone to open up and raise questions about their own health that they may not otherwise reveal.
