Rain, wind, and road closures didn’t stop dozens from gathering at the recent 32nd annual Teaneck Health Fair in at the Rodda Community Center. The event, coordinated by Teaneck Health Department and Holy Name Medical Center, offered several free screenings including hearing, skin, dental, respiratory, blood and allergy, as well as free massages. Lectures ranged in topic from the new health care act to healthy living.
Ken Hatter, the event’s lead coordinator, was once diagnosed with skin cancer. He stressed the importance of regular screenings.
“These kinds of preliminary screenings can save someone’s life, and I think I’m a perfect example of that.”
A special lecture on senior movement was provided by Nancy Elleson, a registered nurse at Holy Name Medical Center.
