MANY VOLUNTEERS AT 2013 GREENVILLE REGIONAL HOSPITAL HEALTH FAIR

The Greenville Regional Hospital Health Fair was Friday, April 5 at the Greenville First United Methodist Church. Many volunteers worked to help make the health fair a success.  Ryan Mifflin, Director of Marketing, Communication, and Advancement at Greenville Regional Hospital said they have about 50 people who work for the few weeks prior to the health fair.  On health fair day, approximately 300 community persons and auxiliary members volunteer and health fair planners appreciate their gifts of time and talents.


Many individuals fasted for 12 hours prior to the event
so they could take advantage of the low-cost comprehensive blood test.

The Bond County Health Department provided a wide range of information.


Overall, it was another large crowd at this year's Greenville Regional Hospital Health Fair.
