Oakhurst Medical hosting two health fairs for back to school

Back-to-school screenings include hearing and vision checks. Oakhurst will give a free book bag and school supplies to each child who gets immunized, while supplies last.

Kids headed back to school can get free immunizations and other services at Oakhurst Medical Center's annual health fair and Family Fun Day.

The Stone Mountain-based medical center is hosting its 2018 Karen Churchill-Hairston Back-to-School Health Fair and Family Fun Day in Conyers on July 22 and in Stone Mountain on July 28.

There will also be free hearing, vision, and dental screenings, and book bags and school supplies giveaways to all immunized children while supplies last.

Parents can also take advantage of free nutrition & obesity counseling, HIV testing, health, beauty and stress relief education, Pre-K registration, and more.

Children receiving immunizations must have a copy of their current immunization record.

There will be performances, pony rides, mascots, face painting, jumpers, healthy snacks, and live local entertainment.

Both health fairs/fun days take place 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. They are co-sponsored by CareSource and Amerigroup Real Solutions.

The annual events were re-named this year in honor of Oakhurst Medical’s late board member Karen Churchill-Hairston, who served from 1996 until her death on March 13, 2018.

For 20 years, the nonprofit Oakhurst Medical has been providing families with free health services and a day of family fun and exciting activities ahead of the new school year.

The Conyers facility is at 977 Taylor St.

The Stone Mountain location is at 5582 Memorial Drive.
