COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The Columbus County School system will host a health fair this weekend in an effort to educate people on the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle.
Columbus county has been named the unhealthiest county in the state of North Carolina, and school officials hope this fair will help bring awareness to that fact.
The goal of the event is to educate our residents in the awareness of multiple factors that affect health, including but not limited to, access to care, smoking, environmental factors, and socio·economic factors.
The fair will offer health screenings, blood pressure checks and education.
The event will be held May 1, 2013 at South Columbus High School from 1:30-5:00 p.m.
