Community Health Fairs
Since 2019, the group and Moyce’s research laboratory have hosted health fairs, partnering with community organizations and nonprofits to provide health care to community members in West Yellowstone, Bozeman and Belgrade. The first fair served around 15 people, the second health fair served 39, and the third served about 75. Several fairs are planned for the Bozeman/Big Sky communities in the Fall of 2022.
At its June health fair in Belgrade, the group offered medical screenings with body mass index, blood pressure and diabetes checks; dental services with exams, X-rays, cleanings and sealants; COVID-19 vaccinations; and vision screenings. Over 80% of participants (at the Belgrade health fair) reported that they did not have medical insurance or a primary care doctor, indicating that this may be their only access to primary care services.
Our next health fair will be in February 2023!
