Mount Desert Island Hospital is set to host its annual health fair on Saturday, March 25, from 10 to 2 p.m. at the Bar Harbor Fire Station. This free event is open to the public. Wellness professionals from the MDI Hospital organization will be on hand to provide health screenings including cholesterol checks, blood glucose, blood pressure, bone density, skin checks, body mass index diagnostics and much more. Emergency Department staff will also provide CPR demonstrations.
Children’s activities will be centered on the 5-2-1-0 Let’s Go program, and healthy smoothies will be available.
Climate to Thrive will be on-site distributing free energy efficient LED lightbulbs to replace incandescent bulbs, as well as to provide information about composting. The Bar Harbor Fire Department will also be available to provide information and answer questions. Complimentary healthy snacks will be available during the fair, and attendees can enter to win the door prize, which is a new composting bin.
