“Summer is a very busy time for parents and students.  We want to help parents quickly accomplish all their back-to-school health needs for their children in one location,” said Terry Keesling, Chief Operations Officer for Rogue Community Health.  Health fairs include well child exams, free vision and hearing screenings, dental screenings & sealant applications, immunizations, and assistance with insurance enrollment.  “Sports physicals are $10 separately, but included with a well child exam and we will bill your insurance,” Keesling added.  Parents attending are encouraged to enter a drawing to win a $250 gift card.

A parent or legal guardian must accompany children to receive services. Parents should bring their child’s immunization record and insurance card.
