'Harvest of Health' clinic and fun run comes to Picuris gym

Posted

Peñasceros, members of Picuris Pueblo and folks in the southern end of Taos County will have the chance for free health screenings and consultations this Saturday (Oct. 20).

The Picuris-Peñasco Community Coalition will be hosting the Harvest of Health, an annual health and wellness fair at the Picuris Pueblo Gymnasium Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. People are asked to bring their insurance, Medicaid or Medicare cards.

The Crossroads Run will begin at 10 a.m., with registration at 9 a.m. There will be a 10k, 5k and 1-mile fun run and walk.

The Peñasco El Centro Family Health Clinic will be profiling free dental screenings, as well as physical consultations, meaning they can have their blood pressure and glucose levels checked, among other things.

People can also get free vaccines, provided by Walgreens, for the flu, shingles and pneumonia for adults and children 8 years old and over.

Free water testing will be provided; people interested in this should fill a clean 1-quart plastic or glass container with a water sample.

Email staff.spot@gmail.com for more information or to volunteer.
