Women's Health Fair held at Knox County Hospital

CORBIN — A spokesperson with the Women’s Health Fair at Knox County Hospital in Barbourville said people were lined up at the door before the event opened Wednesday at 10 a.m.

Sponsored by the hospital along with the Knox County Health Department and PNC Bank, the four-hour event featured lots of information and exhibits from over 20 vendors.

Among those at the health fair were Vonda Carnes with PT Pros Physical Therapy and Sports Centers in Barbourville, Brenda Moses with KCEOC Community Action Agency, and Nancy Ortiz, with the Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center, whose Mobile Mammography Unit visits the Barbourville hospital once a month.

According to Belinda Prichard, a Nurse and Health Educator with the health department, around 250 people attended the event.

“I think it’s been tremendous. We’ve had people come down from Lexington and Knoxville to be vendors here, and it’s been a real good turnout, with a lot of information available for the people who came here today,” she said.
