CRESTVIEW — North Okaloosa County residents visited Crestview High School on Saturday for the 3rd Masonic District’s 6th Annual No Child without Health Care Fair, which provided free children’s health screenings.

The fair featured 10 Crestview physicians and four Pensacola doctors. Children received free dental exams from Northwest Florida State College’s dental program.

Dr. Undi Christopher, a local practitioner, said she was happy to provide free physicals.

"Nothing should be a barrier for a kid to get into school," Christopher said. "This is one way we can get them into school."

Jacques Susic of Crestview said he appreciated the service.

"We don't have the proper health care that we need," Susic said. "I am fortunate to have a place like this to take my children."

Marilyn Parks of Baker said the health fair was convenient for her grandchildren.
