More than 40% of Americans delayed or avoided much-needed healthcare services because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of them were also forced to stop all social interactions at fitness centers, churches, or community support groups. Now is the time to get back on track with your physical and mental health. Ashtabula County Medical Center is here to help you take those first steps as it hosts the inaugural Community Connection Fair, Friday, June 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the ACMC Health and Wellness Plaza, 2259 Lake Avenue. This special event features free health screenings and an opportunity to learn about community resources. The event will also feature prize drawings, giveaways, and more.
ACMC departments and community groups providing information and screenings at Community Connection Fair will be set up on the sidewalk at the ACMC Health and Wellness Plaza for convenient walk-up visits.
ACMC caregivers will provide free health screenings including blood pressure checks and more. In addition, ACMC’s Wound Healing Center, Premiere Fitness, and ACMC Regional Home Health will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.
Joining ACMC at the event are the Alzheimer’s Association, Ashtabula County District Library, Ashtabula County Health Department, Catholic Charities, Cleveland Dental Institute, Community Action, Community Counseling Center, Country Neighbor, League of Women Voters, and Signature Health.
The Ashtabula County Health Department will offer COVID-19 vaccines. The League of Women Voters will provide voter registration forms.
