The 14th Annual Binational Health Fair is taking place Sunday, Oct. 12, 11a-5p at the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds Main Exhibit Hall.
The Binational Health Fair is a part of Binational Health Week – the largest mobilization efforts in the Americas to improve the health and well-being of the under-served living in the US and Canada.
This year Rideout Health is joining the effort with our friends at Ampla Health to present the Health Fair -- and we are also meeting an obligation which was identified in our recent Sutter & Yuba Counties Community Health Needs Assessment: Adult Dental Health and Nutrition. Adult Dental Health and Nutrition will be represented in a big way at the health fair, but the fair is also designed to assist a wide range of patients, adults, children and seniors with a myriad of health and safety information. There will be free screenings, free nutrition and much more.
