Local health efforts

The Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce’s Health and Wellness Committee addresses residents’ preventive health care and health assessment needs through its annual Community Health Fair, usually held in the fall.

Several vendors offer healthcare screenings and provide education during the health fair at the Crestview Community Center, which typically draws hundreds of residents.

Health awareness events also include the Baker Health Fair, presented at the community's school near the start of the school year. The Baker Lions Club, which counts children's health as an organizational goal, sponsors the program.

Local doctors and community leaders sponsor the Crestview No Child without Health Care Fair at Crestview High School. It facilitates free health screenings and provides information as kids head back to school.
