21st Annual Health Fair - April 9, 2016

On April 9th, 2016 the 21st Annual Martha’s Vineyard Hospital Health Fair hosted over fifty registered health and human service providers.

The event was highlighted by screenings and activities and attracted hundreds of community members who were able to receive glaucoma screenings, cholesterol/lipid testing and experience acupuncture treatments, among many other activities. Over seventy kids and adults enjoyed a tour of a transport helicopter with the Boston MedFlight Team and the Oak Bluffs Fire/EMS and Police Departments brought their vehicles for a meet and greet. A kid’s yoga session with Fallon Aiello was relaxing and engaging. Even the adults were saying “Namaste” at the end.
