El Dorado-- The Health Fair's goal is to promote wellness in the El Dorado community.

Health providers and partners came out to give free health screenings to participants.

Local resident Nancy Webb says at her age events like these keep her informed on possible health issues.

"Healthy living for older people. This is for seniors. A lot of them stay home, they don't know what they can get or what they can receive, and they come here and learn all about these things," says Webb.

Perfusionist at the Health Fair, Brad Winn, spoke to residents about the importance of getting heart surgery when needed.

"Explain the importance of having a community heart surgery program, so they don't have to go so far, because time is heart muscle," says Winn.

This is the second year this health fair has been held in El Dorado, and 261 people attended.
