With health costs constantly rising, many people are without health insurance are left unaware of health concerns.  Island Health Center is giving the residents of Galveston an opportunity to get some free medical attention. 

They will be having a health fair, open to the community, on June 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The health fair will address many health issues such as blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure, body fat analysis and accurate height and weight measurements. All totally FREE! There are limited testing supplies available, so it is on a first come, first serve basis only. You will be given a Health Passport to keep for your records.

Come meet the faces of Island Health Center and let us point you in the direction of good health. The festivities will be held in the Fort Crocket Shopping Center behind Academy and across from Goodwill. If you have any questions, please call the office at 409-762-7646.

Along with all of the valuable medical attention, you can also enjoy refreshments and snacks, free chair massages given by Heavenly Massage and Spa,  samples of Body by Vi’s nutritional shakes and a moon walk will be available for the children from Ilyana’s Party Supply. Multiple door prizes will be given by the vendors in attendance such as Hottie’s Tanning Salon, Mainland Hospital, University General Hospital and Bay Area Beauty Consultants. UTMB Blood Drive will be present as well, so be a hero and donate. 

Island Health Center has been providing care to the community for over 25 years. They have grown with the Island through Ike, and continue to serve many local businesses and charities.
