The wellness of our community is important to us. Wellness is knowing that those who live in and around the San Geronimo Valley have the resources they need to feel as peaceful, strong and energetic as possible. Wellness is a reflection of the person and the community as a whole; mentally, emotional, spiritually and physically. Our Health Days focus on all of these elements. There are a number of different programs and services that we offer to promote a healthy community. The San Geronimo Valley Health Days and our First 5 Health Days for young children all offer opportunities for people to get free health screening and education. For more Info. call Nicole Ramirez at (415) 488-8888 ext.254 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
San Geronimo Valley Health Fair
San Geronimo Valley Health Fair takes place in October. Get health screenings and learn new ways to track and maintain your health. As usual we will have a wide variety of wellness and medical practitioners from western, alternative, and holistic traditions. We emphasize hands on approach and less pamphlet pushing. Sample services include:
- Free screenings, consults, treatments
- Healthy snacks
- Flu shots and homeopathic flu remedies
- San Geronimo Valley Lions Club vision screening
- T’ai Chi Demos
- Breast exams with TAPS
- HIV and HCV testing with Marin AIDS Project
- Blood pressure and blood sugar screening
- Natural poison oak remedy
- Mercury education from Turtle Island Restoration Project
- Accuquest hearing screening
- Get help signing up for Covered California, Medi-Cal and CalFresh
- San Geronimo Valley Lions Club blood drive
If you are attending a Health Day, please bring your insurance cards.(i.e. medi-cal, Kaiser, Healthy Families, etc.) if you have one. There will be someone on site to run your insurance to pay for flu shots. If you do not have insurance a flu shot will be provided. Due to funding cuts, billing your insurance company helps the Center by allowing us to cover costs and, in turn, offer more healthy services. So if you have insurance please use it.
San Geronimo Valley Health Days
In collaboration with Marin County Health and Human Services, West Marin Senior Services, Huckleberry Youth Programs and Coastal Health Alliance, our Valley Health Days are held four times a year, providing free health screenings, immunization clinics, and health information and prevention services for adults and children in the community. While all are welcome, we are focused on reaching the most under-served — the elderly, homeless and immigrant population of West Marin, low-income people, those on Medi-Cal or without insurance, and people for whom transportation is burdensome.
