Cape May County health officials are encouraging residents to take charge of their health by coming to the county’s free annual resource day.
The county’s 13th annual Healthcare Resource Day will take place 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 14 at the Wildwoods Convention Center for anyone interested in getting free health screenings, testing and information on local resources.
“Cape May County Healthcare Resource Day offers you the chance to see a variety of health services under one roof,” Health Officer Kevin Thomas said in a statement.
About 40 health care organizations will showcase at the event. Parish Nursing and the South Jersey AIDS Alliance will conduct screenings and testing for cholesterol, blood sugar, fracture risk, peripheral artery disease and HIV.
Guest speaker Joe Faldetta, substance abuse navigator at Cape Assist, will present at 11 a.m. on community approaches to addiction and recovery.
