TRINITY, NC -- Normally, when you hear health fair you think medical screenings and information. But a health fair happening at Trinity Memorial United Methodist Church is going deeper. Organizer Dawn Shaw from the church joined Tracey McCain on the Good Morning Show to talk about the event.
It's focused on domestic violence and substance abuse because church leaders say they want to let people know that there is help out there and where they can find it. So there will be all sorts of resources available for people who attend. They include: the Family Crisis Center, Archdale Police Department, a Substance Abuse Counseling Instructor, officials from Daymark (Mental Health and Substance Abuse), Care/Dare, and DSS. Randolph County Community College will also have medical assistant students on hand to do blood pressures tests and provide information on HIPAA Laws.
There will also be activities for kids so their parents can seek the help they need.
The Domestic Violence and Substance Abuse Health fair is Saturday, October 8th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
It's happening at Trinity Memorial UMC, which is on Highway 62 in Trinity.
