The newly formed Santee Health Network (SHN) is having its first annual health fair in the Fresh and Easy parking lot on October 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m to promote health awareness in town.
Local health care providers, chiropractors, personal trainers, physical therapists, optometrists and many more health professionals will be on hand to help Santee stay healthier with information, advice and goodies.
SHN is a group of health and wellness related businesses and entities that have joined together to "help the public help themselves."
They are looking for more local health related businesses to host booths or demonstrations at the health fair. There is NO COST to host a booth.
If you are interested in joining the group or having a FREE booth at the health fair, contact SHN here or email email@example.com.
