MedicAlert childrens health fair benefits all ages
Placeholder Image

From Batman to Wonder Woman, each year children across the country don capes and masks to emulate their favorite superheroes on Halloween. This year children in the community won’t have to limit their super powers to just one evening thanks to the MedicAlert Foundation in Turlock, which is hosting a Super Hero Kids Health and Safety Fair.


MedicAlert Foundation is encouraging residents of all ages to attend the fair as it aims to educate children and adults on a myriad of health issues. Children can practice safe bicycling skills at the Super Hero Bicycle Training Course and watch live animal exhibitions. The event also includes a bounce house, face-painting, crafts, and a Teddy Bear Clinic for kids.


Adults can access information on the Affordable Care Act and Covered California from local insurance agencies and Kaiser Permanente will be present with their “SHOPkp Mobile Enrollment Van” where community members can go for information on health plans and health coverage.


The event also offers free health screenings and clinics for all ages that include blood pressure testing and vision and hearing screenings. There will be first responder activities that demonstrate fire and police training, as well as car seat safety checks.


The Super Hero Kids Health and Safety Fair is free and open to the public. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the MedicAlert Foundation Campus located at 2323 Colorado Ave. in Turlock.
