CIMC Health Fair Returns To Casino Ballroom


Catalina Island Medical Center will hold its 31st annual Community Health Fair on Thursday May 7, 2015, in the beautiful Casino Ballroom in Avalon. With mainland and local healthcare vendors providing free or low cost screenings between 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., the Health Fair is an important event for everyone to attend.

After Health Fest 2014 was held outdoors on Crescent Avenue, the 2015 Health Fair has chosen to return to familiar territory – the historic Ballroom in the iconic Casino building. Residents and visitors are invited to attend this FREE event to take advantage of the resources provided about medical care, wellness and general health related information.

CIMC gives patients an opportunity to have their blood drawn and analyzed for a variety of screenings (lipid profile, diabetes, prostate, thyroid, Hepatitis C and more) for $25 per test. “Stepping Into Health” information, “CIMC Cares” materials and assistance with the new electronic medical records system (“Patient Portal”) will be available.

Volunteers are needed. If you would like to help at the 2015 Health Fair, please, call Dawn Sampson (310) 510-0520. Financial contributions are also greatly appreciated. Please mail your tax deductible donation to CIMC Health Fair P.O. Box 1563 Avalon, CA 90704.

Catalina Island Medical Center is committed to provide quality health care to each individual and to improve the overall health of our community. To make an appointment at CIMC’S Medical Group Office please call (310) 510-0096.
