 State Sen.  Maria Collett hosts the Ambler Area YMCA's annual health fair

This month hosted her 5th annual health fair event at the Ambler Area YMCA, offering information, healthy food, and immunizations from 40-plus vendors.

“As a nurse, I know how important it is that families have the tools they need to live full, healthy lives,” Collett said. “Each year, my Family Health Fair aims to connect people with a diverse set of mental, physical, and behavioral health concerns in a fun, family-friendly environment.

“I am grateful to our wonderful vendors and generous hosts at the Ambler Y for helping local families stay healthy this holiday season and beyond!”

Over 100 attendees of all ages explored 40+ vendors offering a wide range of health and wellness services, sampled farm fresh apples from Shady Brook Farm, got vaccinated at Eric’s RX Shoppe, and enjoyed a afternoon of free family fun.
