Centura Health To Support Community Event By Providing Free Health Services To Public

(CENTENNIAL, COLO.) Centura Health, the region’s health care leader, will offer free health screenings, health insurance enrollment and free flu shots to the community during Fall Feast Denver on Nov. 11, taking place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the National Western Stock Show, 4655 Humboldt St. in Denver.

While the primary purpose of Fall Feast Denver is to provide a fresh meal to as many as 1,500 recipients, the community celebration features other free attractions such as live music, haircuts, health clinics, and a children’s entertainment zone featuring games, crafts, face painting, inflatables and more.

The Centura Health booth will give visitors a chance to engage in preventive health measures that can lead to a better understanding of their overall health and what actions might be appropriate for them.

“We are excited to extend our passion for health beyond the walls of hospitals and clinics, and offer these free health screenings, which can save lives by detecting life-threatening conditions,” said James Corbett, M.Div., J.D., Senior Vice President, Community Health and Values Integration. “Our connected community of caregivers work every day to partner with individuals on their health journey, helping to move health forward while building flourishing communities.”

The Fall Fest will begin an hour before the barbeque lunch is served. Gisele Dias de Oliveira, MS, MPH, from Centura Health’s Community Health & Values Integration team, will offer a guided exercise and dance session at the main stage, based on interest.
