Third Annual Big Bus event this weekend

The Department of Health in Collier County (DOH-Collier) will be hosting the third annual Immokalee Big Bus Event at the DOH-Collier Immokalee campus (419 North First Street, Immokalee) on Saturday, October 1, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. This free health fair and public awareness campaign is geared towards providing opportunities for individuals and families to receive certain health services and information. Eight big buses will be on site to provide health services to those who visit.

PowerPoint PresentationThe agencies providing buses at the event will be:
• Alzheimer’s Memory Bus
• Radiology Regional Mammogram Bus
• Community Blood Center
• Collier County Emergency Management
• Goodwill Industries
• Harry Chapin Food Bank
• NAMI Mental Health Bus
• Ronald McDonald Care Mobile

Along with the big buses will be over fifty other agencies providing free health services and information. Free adult flu vaccines, health screenings, dental screenings for children and adults, bike inspections and repair, child safety seat inspections, bike helmets, food, family fun and exercise, including a rock climbing wall, will be available.

This event will be held in conjunction with Ciclovia Immokalee, featuring wellness events and numerous games for kids and adults of all ages to enjoy, and AVOW’s Butterfly Release Immokalee, a time to remember and honor loved ones that are deceased. The butterfly is a reminder of how beautiful, delicate and fragile life can be and we should remember to appreciate and be grateful for each moment. We encourage individuals and families to participate in the Big Bus Event, Ciclovia Immokalee, and AVOW Butterfly Release and celebrate the day with safe, healthy and fun activities for all.
