ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 29, 2023) — Free medical services were provided to over 600 people, many who may not otherwise have access to healthcare.
The free health fair offers medical services including dental and vision care and will continue tomorrow, Oct. 1 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
The Anaheim Health Fair, in its 17th year, brings together hundreds of doctors, other healthcare professionals and volunteers offering free services to attendees, including many who don’t have health insurance or regular access to healthcare services.
For some, the health fair is their only chance for annual vision and dental care.
This event also includes a citizenship fair with application help, legal advice and other assistance for those seeking to become U.S. citizens.
The citizenship fair helps those just getting started with the process or those with applications already underway.
We know how important our health is but getting access to healthcare is not always easy. The health fair is an annual Anaheim tradition that brings the city and healthcare providers together to help those in need of healthcare.
- A range of healthcare services are available, all at no cost, including:
- Physicals, electrocardiograms and hearing tests
- Diabetes, cholesterol and other blood testing
- Mammograms and pap smears
- Dental fillings and extractions
- Eye exams and prescription glasses made onsite
- Flu shots and vaccines
The Anaheim Health Fair will continue on Oct. 1, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event will be held in Hall E of the Anaheim Convention Center with free parking accessible off West Street south of Katella Avenue.
Registration is encouraged and can be done at Anaheim.net/healthfair.
