14th annual Women's Health Fair takes place in Paragould

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)-  Several women in Region 8 gathered in Paragould Thursday to learn about health and wellness.

About 1,000 women attended the 14th annual Women's Health Fair that took place at the Arkansas Methodist Medical Center.  The event featured over 40 booths that offered free laboratory work and many other demonstrations.

AMMC also gave away 100 free mammograms at the health fair for women unable to afford the breast cancer screening.

Organizers say the fair is the biggest opportunity they have to teach women all about the diseases that affect the gender.
