2011 Riverview Health Fair

Good day.. how's your health?

Many Riverview residents got the answer to that question at the Health Fair, held in the Riverview Community Room in the KHRA building at the V.O. Dobbins Sr. Complex last Saturday, April 30.

Information available this year, included topics on Rural Health, Diabetes, Bi-polar, ADHD, dental care and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Local food expert Geri Harrison also helped people with information on healthy eating and food buying.

Several of the exhibitors also went through the community, visiting seniors and the sick and shut-in who could not come out to the event.

This was the 10th year for the Health Fair, sponsored by South Central Kingsport Community Development's Weed & Seed Office, the Health Ministry of Central Baptist and Shiloh Baptist Churches, and the Kingsport Housing and Redevelopment Authority (KHRA).
