The annual health fair held by Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital in Newberg, West Virginia, was a huge success. This event has been a vital part of the hospital’s community outreach programs since 2003 and is co-hosted by the Newberg Rotary Club. The health fair provided free and low-cost health screenings and education to the community.
Staff from Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital’s Laboratory, Cardiac Rehabilitation, Trauma, and Primary Care – Fellowsville, collaborated with the Newberg Rotary Club, Newberg Senior Center, and ten other healthcare and community agencies to put on the health fair.
