3RD Annual Health Fair

Saturday, October 20, 2018 SJ County Clinics and SJ General Hospital held their 3RD Annual Community Health Fair. The event was held at the San Joaquin County Clinics' main clinic parking lot in French Camp on the campus of SJ General Hospital. This is a yearly event of San Joaquin General Hospital and County Clinics on behalf of the general health of SJ County residents. Spanish and other language medical professionals provided communication with the many diversified communities in our County.

San Joaquin County Clinics partnered with nearby nursing schools to conduct free health screenings, provider review of findings, and provide free flu shots (while supply last). The SJCC Family Medicine and Healthy Beginnings Clinics were also available to see patients who need to see a physician provider the same-day from the screening areas. Car Seat Checks were also offered by trained San Joaquin General technicians.

The general population attending was low- income families, “at risk” children, youth and adults, and uninsured individuals. San Joaquin County Clinic’s participation is a key factor among other community health fairs in SJ County during October. The goal is to help educate healthy living and provide health care accessibility for the entire County.
