  • Bayhealth will be part of this year’s Community Education and Health Fair on June 20 at the Modern Maturity Center, in Dover. The educational fair is free and open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
    The fair has something for all ages, according to Jamie Sherman, health fair coordinator. Sherman expects more than 300 visitors to attend the event which will include nearly 70 vendors.
    “There will be health screenings and free giveaways. It is showing what is out there in the community, organizations and services,” she said.
    Bayhealth’s contribution will offer education regarding Bayhealth’s Cardiovascular Services, the Stroke Center and a fall prevention display, according to Trisha Bentley, a Bayhealth clinical educator.
    “We use visual models to educate patients about home safety.  At the Modern Maturity event, participants will pick items out of a house model that may put them at risks for falls at home. 
    Eliminating safety hazards is the best way to reduce the risk of falls and other complications,”
    For more information on the fair, contact the Modern Maturity Center at 734-1200.
