City of Myrtle Beach opens its Health Fair to the public

Everyone’s invited to the City of Myrtle Beach’s 2018 Health Fair, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Thursday, October 18, at the Myrtle Beach Sports Center. Come meet with local providers, pick up educational materials and receive free screenings. The Health Fair features fitness experts, dieticians, chiropractors, audiologists, optometrists and other health care professionals.

While at the Health Fair, you can “give t...he gift of life,” too. The American Red Cross will be on site for a blood drive. Did you know that the Red Cross needs more than 13,000 blood donations a day to meet the needs of patients nationwide at 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers?

  Admission to the Health Fair is free and open to the public. If you’re new to the community, it’s a great chance to meet some of our Grand Strand health care providers and ask questions. The Sports Center is at 2115 Farlow Street, behind the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. Parking is free. For more information, contact Carolyn Wheaton at 843-918-1114 or
