The Valor Health 2019 Community Health Fair was a great success. The sun was out as more than 250 community members joined in celebration receiving screenings, free health education, hospital tours, healthy foods, prizes and more.
The day began with a kick-off walk around the Valor Health Campus, strolling the beautiful Mary Secor Walking Trail, led by Valor’s CEO, Brad Turpen and joined by the City of Emmett’s Mayor, Gordon Petrie, and Emmett Schools Superintendent, Wayne Rush. Booths were decorated to match a beachy theme, encouraging all to “Ride the Wellness Wave,” awarding Horizon Hospice the Best Decorated and Most Engaged Booth.
A huge thank you to all of our community partners, vendors and volunteers who came out and supported the fair. Partners were: School District, City of Emmett, Gem County and Southwest District health. Vendors were Carl Rizzo (Smoking Cessation) from Cherry Ridge, Emmett City Police and Fire Departments, EMS and County Fire, Gem County Recreation Department, Heart & Home Hospice, Horizon Hospice, Lighthouse Hospice, Meadowview Assisted Living, Mountain Land Physical Therapy, Nutrition Counseling Wellness Center, Peak Physical Therapy, Emmett School District, Gem County Sheriff’s Posse, Signature Hospice, Southwest District Health, The Cottages and Valor Health Auxiliary. Volunteers were Valor Health Employees, Board of Trustees and the Patient and Family Advisory Council.
