WSU Co-Sponsors Free Community Education, Health Fair

OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University Community Education Center (CEC) and the Ogden Civic Action Network (OgdenCAN) have joined forces to organize their first Community Education and Health Fair. The event is free and open to the public Sept. 7 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Community Education Center (2605 Monroe Blvd, Ogden).

Those who attend will receive free health services such as screenings for prediabetes, depression and high blood pressure. The fair will provide immunizations, dental care and health information to improve the quality and expectancy of life for community members. It will also offer Naloxone, which is used to stop an opioid overdose.

Representatives from nearly 30 community organizations will be on hand to provide information about wellness and education opportunities in northern Utah.

“The Community Education Center in partnership with OgdenCAN is delighted to offer this Education and Health Fair,” said Luis Lopez, CEC director. “In addition to providing essential services to area residents, this event will also help us build stronger ties with the community.”

Participants will also enjoy free food and prizes, as well as performances from Ben Lomond and Ogden high schools cheerleaders and jazz and bagpipe bands. Children can participate in hands-on science and technology activities.

Sponsors for the event include OgdenCAN, Weber State University’s Career and Technical Education (CTE), Ogden School District, United Way of Northern Utah and Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital.
