Annual Health Fair Returns Next Week

OCEAN CITY — AARP Chapter 1917 of Ocean City will present its 27th Annual Health Fair on Wednesday, May 8, in the Roland E. Powell Convention Center, from 7-11 a.m.

This is a great opportunity for residents of the community and visitors to get free lipid profiles (cholesterol) and glucose testing provided by the Atlantic General Hospital. The testing will require a 12-hour fast.

In addition, approximately 80 exhibitors will be on hand to offer their latest information on health and wellness.

The fair is co-sponsored by the Mayor and City Council of Ocean City and the Atlantic General Hospital.

There is no admission fee and is limited to attendees 12 years and older. Testing is limited to the first 500 attendees.
