COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) hosted a booth at the Broadview Heights Human Services Department’s first Health Fair on Saturday, June 20th. The event, sponsored by University Hospitals Parma Medicals Center, provided the attendees with health information, health screenings, literature and other usable handouts to provide for the growth of the community’s health education.


“The cooperation and support that the community of Broadview Heights displayed in an effort to broaden the health education of all fair attendees was incredible,” Rep. Anielski said. “The importance of regular health screenings and education is vital for every individual, of all ages. This health fair encouraged those participants to be proactive in the areas of their health and well-being.”


The health fair provided an array of useful medical services and information.  Many Physicians and other health care professionals were available at the fair to perform screenings from blood glucose, blood pressure, bone density, and many others.  Tours of the University Hospitals were provided; as well as various education presentations. Pharmacists were also available to answer the attendee’s questions about drug interactions and much more.


Amy Washabaugh, Director of Human Services for the City of Broadview Heights commented about the fair, “On behalf of the City of Broadview Heights, I love to plan the health fair event every year.  This year we offered something new with the sponsorship of University Hospitals Parma Medical Center, which offered more screenings to the public.  University Hospitals provided every person who attended a free first aid kit.  Prevention education and early detection are major factors of good health.  By offering free screenings to the community, educating them on specific diseases and the multidisciplinary teams offered at UH, we then improve community health and meet the goals of both entities.”


The Broadview Heights Health Fair is an annual event for the local community, in which Rep. Anielski looks forward to attending in years to come.
