THCC's Lincoln Heights Health Center
1401 Steffen Avenue
On Saturday, August 17, The HealthCare Connection (THCC) and GE Developing Health Cincinnati will culminate the celebration of National Health Center Week with the GE Back-to-School Kids Health Fair. The event will be held from 9am-4pm at THCC's Lincoln Heights Health Center at 1401 Steffen Ave. The health center will be open for back-to-school physical and dental exams. Please call 513-588-3623 to schedule an appointment. At the same time, the GE Back-to-School Kids Health Fair will be happening in the parking lot and in the building.
Patients who complete their physical or dental exam will receive a coupon to create a smoothie using a Blender Bike, a blender powered by the bicycle attached to it. However, any child in grade K-12 will receive a health passport when they enter the fair that will guide them around to healthy activities at the fair. Younger children will love the bouncy house and inflatable obstacle course, and older students will enjoy the knockout basketball, soccer kick, and Xbox 360. All ages will love the life-sized board game Are You A Health Superstar?!
Once the students complete their passport, they are entered to win tons of cool prizes. GE Developing Health is giving away bicycles with helmets, backpacks filled with school supplies, sports balls, and tickets or passes to tons of local hot spots-including the Cincinnati Zoo, Newport Aquarium, Kings Island, Full Throttle, Reds games, and movie passes.
Each student who comes to the health fair will also receive a goody bag filled with cool freebies, including a recipe book, water bottle and healthy snacks. The Wendys location adjacent to the Lincoln Heights Health Center will be donating 10% of its profits from that days sales to THCC in honor of National Health Center Week.The health fair will also include local businesses and organizations that will provide resources and information on their products and services to the parents of the students. Some of the exhibitors include Buckeye Community Health Plan, Sanofi-Aventis, and Health Care Access Now.
