Community Benefits 101

Community Care Corner

One of the ways hospitals serve area residents is through health fairs. These health improvement activities are offered for free or at a significantly reduced cost and are carried out to create healthier communities.

Boone Memorial Hospital (BMH) sponsors a large fair each year, and this October – which marked their 10th Annual BMH Cares health fair – featured a first-time event where the hospital teamed up with the American Heart Association (AHA) to teach students the hands-only technique of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
