More About Lady Fair
A lot of educational material will be available for women who decide not to get screened. We have our service lines, and practices will be represented if you want to ask questions.
The first Lady Fair was held almost 15 years ago so women could get potentially life-saving screenings and get health information. The event also allows women to shop for items that can’t be found in the typical store.
Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge is focused on wellness, preventive care and knowing your health numbers. We hope you will attend. Interpreters will be available for Hmong, Spanish and deaf and hard of hearing.
