Health fair helps 70 homeless

For people living in homelessness, healthcare resources are a desperate need. Twice a year, MUST offers screenings and basic services to try to help stabilize diabetes, lower cholesterol, provide healthy diet information and check vision, for instance. The Sept. 21 event at the Elizabeth Inn Shelter was open to members of the community, as well as MUST clients, and provided 70 people with a range of free services that also included blood pressure checks, flu vaccinations, women’s health information and consultation on mental health. MUST hosted the event in partnership with Wellstar Health System, Walgreens Pharmacy and 10 other healthcare providers.
