Rows of vendors provided check-ups, screenings and information during the Hidalgo County Employee Health Fair held at the Edinburg Activity Center on Wed., Feb. 11. The event was kicked off with a welcome by Precinct 4 Commissioner Joseph Palacios and Jaime Longoria, from County Judge Ramon Garcia's office. More than 380 employees took advantage of the free health services offered by more than 75 vendors, which included glucose testing, immunizations, cholesterol and blood pressure screenings and much more. Employees received valuable information on ways to maintain their health and were able to speak to health care professionals on a one on one basis. Organized by members of HidalGO FIT Wellness committee, the mission of the Employee Health Fair was to promote wellness and healthy habits by providing employees with the tools and education they need to incorporate healthy habits into their daily routines.

We want to thank all of the vendors for their participation and generous donations which helped make our Employee Health Fair a great success! The HidalGO FIT Wellness committee also wants to thank all the elected officials and department heads who encouraged their employees to attend.
