PANAMA CITY Fla. (WMBB) — A local non-profit is making it easier than ever for you to get a health screening this year.

DADSRA started in 2010 and helped those in need after Hurricane Michael. They are still involved in the community now. After the past few years due to COVID-19 the non-profit saw, many missed their annual health screenings.

They wanted to make being and staying healthy more accessible for everyone of all ages, so they met with a few organizations and vendors to put on a health fair. Vendors, just like Bay County Vet Center, will also be there to answer any questions you may have about Veteran counseling.

DADSRA Executive Director Michelle Clay said a blood bus will also be there Saturday to encourage residents to donate blood since there has been a shortage due to COVID.

For more information on Saturday’s health fair located at 1942 East 7th Street in Panama City, you can visit the DADSRA website.
