MCTX Access Health & FB County Back-to-School Health Fair
August 10 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
In celebration of National Back to School Month and continuing the tradition of community unity, the #ShowMeCity is once again partnering with AccessHealth and Fort Bend County to host the 2019 Back-to-School Health Fair and Backpack giveaway on Saturday, Aug. 10, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Fort Bend County Annex, 307 Texas Pkwy.
“Our City credo is together, we excel!” said City Manager Anthony J. Snipes. “And, partnership initiatives such as this one, are integral to our efforts to be a strong, strategic municipality with a focus on community service.”
At this year’s event, participants will receive free immunizations, vision and dental screenings, speech/language screenings and haircut vouchers. The fair will also feature a DJ, bounce houses, snacks, face painters, mascots, a dunk tank, community booths and more. Shot records are required to receive immunizations and children must be present to receive backpacks and school materials.
“Over the past several years, it’s been our pleasure to assist families with preparing their children to return to school,” said Sharonda DeBose, Community Engagement Manager for AccessHealth. “We understand the financial demands and stress that parents face each year and by having the Back-to-School Health Fair events, we hope to alleviate some of their burdens by providing them with an opportunity to receive free immunizations, sports physicals, health screening and backpacks filled with supplies.”
