Limestone County residents will have the opportunity to get free health information and health screenings in a fun environment next week at Limestone Medical Center’s annual Spring Fling health fair.
This is the fifth year for the event, which is scheduled for Friday, April 4, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at LMC, in Groesbeck.
The halls of the hospital will be lined with dozens of vendors providing information about a variety of health topics, said Kimberly Meyer, LMC Director of Marketing and Public Relations.
“Everything’s free, all the services,” Meyer said, “and it’s for anyone. Since we do it annually, our goal is for it to be an event that people will come to, to get their health screened. Even the healthy person can come and chart their health each year.”
