About this program

Health Fair 11 Community’s goal is to provide free or low-cost screenings to people who don't have easy access to basic health care. The broader goal is to help people re-engage with their health journey and connect them with a medical 'home' and other resources already available in their community. Our team travels to community festivals and neighborhood gatherings across the Twin Cities area. Send an email to Healthfair@kare11.com to be considered as a host site.
