By Carisa Biesecker
Local residents with questions in regard to their health may want to stop by the Campo YMCA in March where at The Greater Brandon Chamber of Commerce will be holding its 11th Annual Health Fair.Planned for Saturday, March 6, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Campo Family YMCA, located at 3414 Culbreath Rd. in Valrico, the health fair welcomes residents of all ages to traverse the fair, partaking in free health screenings ranging from blood pressure, pulse oximetry, massage, vision and biomeridian/ spine screenings. There will be giveaways and demonstrations from local health-care entities. According to Tina Brock- Fallen, chair of the Health Fair Task Force, the chamber holds the event, “It is offered so that people can get free screenings and information about health issues.”Last year’s affair brought some 1,700 out to Campo YMCA, with more than 1,000 expected in 2010. “It is a great time…,” adds Brock- Fallen. The Health Fair is made possible through the sponsorships of Brandon Regional Hospital, Bills Prescription Center, The Tampa Tribune/Brandon News & Tribune, Bloomingdale Center for Radiology and Women’s Care of Brandon.
