ODESSA, TX-Earlier today the Annual Permian Basin Health Fair celebrated their 30th Anniversary.
The event kicked off today at 8:00 a.m. at the Ector County Coliseum.
Over 50 vendors were out handing out healthcare information and providing dozens of screenings including a kidney screening.
Janelle Woody, the President of the Health Fair, says for many people this is the only place they get their healthcare and testing done.
“Things are changing so rapidly in the healthcare field, and it's hard to keep up with everything, and so we bring in the people that are so knowledgeable and can share the information with the consumer," said Woody.
Families also enjoyed a tour of one of the aero-care helicopters.
Woody says in all, the fair is a great way to bring awareness to the community of all the services offered in the area.
