Free health screenings were offered at the Colony Square Mall this weekend…

The mall hosted the Community Health Fair put on by the Zanesville-Muskingum County Health Department. Vendors from Zanesville and surrounding areas handed out information to shoppers.

"We’ve participated in the health fair that the Health Department puts on for three years now and it’s always a good way for the public to come out and learn about what’s available to them in Zanesville and the surrounding counties," said Joan Alexander of CareSource.

Alexander said it’s important for people to know what kind of help is out there.

"A lot of times people put it off until they need it, and we are always, at CareSource, and many of the other vendors that participate here, encourage people to be proactive about their healthcare and to take care of things and get things in order before they really need it."

CareSource is available for anyone who has a medical card through Job and Family Services.
