SJ County Clinics and SJ General Hospital held their 3RD Annual Community Health Fair. The event was held at the San Joaquin County Clinics’ main clinic parking lot on the campus of SJ General Hospital in French Camp. This is a yearly event SJC Hospital and County Clinics hold on behalf of the general health of SJ County residents. Spanish and other language speaking medical staff and professionals provided communication with the many diversified community members. Included in our Health Fair are low-income families, “at risk” children, youth, adults, and uninsured individuals. The goal is to help educate healthy living and provide health care accessibility for the entire County.
