Brunswick Wellness Coalition offers healthcare services after hours at Care Fair

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — The Brunswick Wellness Coalition is working to provide access to healthcare services and education after normal business hours with multiple Care Fairs across the county.

The purpose of the Brunswick Wellness Coalition is to promote healthy eating and active living to prevent the onset of disease and help people better live a better quality life.

Each Care Fair takes place in the parking lot of Walmart from 5-8 p.m. This Thursday, it is in Southport. On September 18, it will be in Shallotte.

There will be eye glass adjustments, dental consultations, A1c screens, blood pressure screens, mammography screens, giveaways, a kid zone with fun and educational activities and grocery store tours where individuals go around the grocery store and get tips on how to eat healthy on a budget.

The events are free to attend and BWC said if you don’t have insurance, you will still be seen.

BWC was made possible by a grant from the Duke Endowment. Brunswick County was 1 of 10 counties in NC to receive the funding and be part of the Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas initiative.
