Guests will be able to receive onsite advice on finances, Medicaid, Medicare, weight loss management, healthcare options, senior services, and Veteran’s resources and services.
“Our Annual Health Fair event has been a great success over the years,” said Deisy Duran, Mesquite Gaming’s Director of Benefits & Workers Compensation. “This year’s Health Fair slogan is “Bigger, Better, Together in Health and Wellness.” The Health Fair’s objective is to provide the community and our employees with onsite health screenings, interactive activities, and access to services and resources that focus on; physical, mental, occupational, social, intellectual, and financial health. “It has been a rewarding experience to see our annual event come full circle,” We hosted our first health fair in the Casablanca Event center six years ago. With only 20 vendors, the venue provided more space than we needed. This year we are back in the venue where it all started, and we have partnered with more than 80 organizations to bring all-encompassing services and resources from various health and wellness specialties. It is a surreal accomplishment that would not be possible without the ongoing support and commitment of the organizations partnering with us yearly.”
The event will also include raffle drawings for all attendees. Prizes include a Smart TV, gift baskets, gift cards, gym memberships, spa services, a gun safe, and more.
