Free health screenings and information will be available at a day-long Community Health Fair in the Justina area on June 28. Sponsored by River Region Human Services, the “Take the Test. Take Control” event will include free testing for STDs (sexually-transmitted diseases) and HIV/AIDS and information about making smart choices for a healthy lifestyle.
The event will be held from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. at 3103-3 Justina Road in Jacksonville. The health fair is free and open to the public.
In addition to testing, River Region and its community partners will be providing information about preventing and treating substance abuse and mental illness. There also will be information about transitional and permanent housing for homeless individuals who are coping with any of these health problems.
