Great Cranberry Isles Health Fair a Success
BAR HARBOR, ME — Approximately 20 health care providers traveled to GCI on the Moonbeam and other boats to a health fair hosted by the Maine Seacoast Mission. This provided islanders a chance to have free hearing tests by an audiologist, blood sugar checks information on breast self exam, hospice, domestic violence and home health care.
There was chance to put on a survival suit in a water safety class, learn about movement and music therapy, or make a spirit doll with an art therapist.
Having a chance for providers to meet each other to collaborate and for islanders to learn about services on a beautiful island made for a special day for all.
