On Saturday, the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital Health Fair attracted large crowds of people who turned out to gather information, get free screenings, take classes, and learn about some of the health and human services available on the Island.

The annual hospital sponsored event provides an opportunity for licensed or credentialed providers and provider organizations to present their services to the public.

Among the biggest draws were free tests that included cholesterol screening, bone density scans and skin cancer screenings.
