Women’s Health Fair Comes to the Lincoln Community Center
Daly City - Every woman should understand her health, do you? On Saturday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Lincoln Community Center, a Women’s Health Fair will be held to provide health screenings and healthy tips for women of all ages. Various health organizations will offer on-site screenings, useful information and additional referrals to interested residents.

Health agencies participating will include Mills Peninsula Health Services, San Mateo County Health Department, Sequoia Hospital, and Seton Medical Center. Exhibitors will receive information on ways to create a healthy lifestyle, as well as to record one’s personal health information. An array of self-help screening stations for cardiac risk, blood pressure, breast health education, Body Mass Indexing (BMI), fitness testing, and grip strength will be set up at the fair to assist area residents.

Throughout the event, children will be able to enjoy a scavenger hunt and face painting. In addition, there will be raffle drawings for prizes donated from various local hospitals and organizations. The annual event is sponsored by the Daly City ACCESS program, a collaboration of community-based service agencies and individuals that began in 2001, sponsored by the Senior/Adult Division of the Parks and Recreation Department.
