Health fair provides vast information

I would like to thank Assemblyman Jim Hayes for sponsoring such an informative and helpful event every year at the Amherst Senior Center.

I had been aware of his health fair for quite some time, but this year was the first time I attended.

In the past, I had never seen a need to participate, but this year I was advised by one of my doctors to keep an eye on a potential medical issue, so I decided to check it out.

The event had had an impressive turnout, and I was pleasantly surprised by the number and variety of health organizations offering useful information and tests for free. I found exactly what I was looking for and so much more.

I would highly recommend that everyone make it a point to attend this event next year to see for themselves what a valuable opportunity it is to help the community stay healthy.
