It is wonderful that you conduct health fair in two parts so participants get lab test results before having counseling with physicians. It’s also good to have different tests and studies available in health fair. I was really impressed by volunteers in same dress providing selfless service. –Sandi Martin, Administration Manager, Oakwood Annapolis Hospital
