Free health screenings, such as blood pressure checks, cholesterol checks, osteoporosis screenings, video ear inspections and so much more will be offered.
At this time, approximately 50 community organizations are scheduled to participate in the expo.
This year’s featured speakers will be Dr. Ronald Black on “Can Your Turn Your Disease Off and On?” and Kieu Okuley on the “Hidden Dangers in Your Medicine Cabinet.”
The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office will be on site for a Medication Disposal Day.
A free lunch will also be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
