At the Fair, citizens can make appointments for clinical services and learn about the availability of access to competent, quality health care, including behavioral & primary healthcare services and community support services.

NE Delta HSA and many local health care providers will staff the event. Some of the Fair activities will include educational health information, free health screenings and lots of food and games for the kids.
