CEDAR CITY — Have a health care question you need answered? Are you interested in emergency preparedness? Need help with your mortgage payment?
Answers to these questions and more will offered at the annual Cedar City Health Fair Saturday, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. inside the concourse at Cedar City Hospital.
Intermountain Healthcare is sponsoring the event that will feature free screenings, giveaways and medical information designed to help those who have a specific need or general questions.

“The yearly health fair and flu shoot-out provides a fun, easy and important service to our community,” Becki Bronson, spokesperson for the hospital, said.
There is no charge to attend the fair; it is completely free to the public.
Several agencies will be in attendance offering residents information and help they can access.
