Back to school fair offers free health screenings, school supplies

GAFFNEY, S.C. (WSPA) – A local health center is helping families in the Upstate get ready to head back to school.

Regenesis Health Care hosted a free back to school health fair on Saturday.

The event offered free health screenings for students including hearing, vision, blood sugar and more.

Students who completed four or more health screenings walked away with a free backpack filled with school supplies.

The annual event is aimed at keeping kids healthy and relieving stress for parents who wouldn’t normally be able to afford the health screenings and school supplies.

There will be another health fair in Spartanburg on August 12. It’s from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Spartanburg Community College’s downtown campus at 220 East Kennedy Street. Click or tap here for more information.
