Cow Creek Public Health Hosts Third Annual Health Fair
Cow Creek Public Health gathered community resources, Tribal members, and the public together in September for their Third Community Health Fair, an annual tradition since 2021. The event is designed to link Tribal members to resources, create community connections to health organizations, and celebrate Cow Creek’s various Health and Wellness Center departments.
The health fair, hosted at Village Station in Roseburg, featured activities, giveaways, and food for each of its 140-plus attendees. Visitors could sign up for patient care with Cow Creek, complete cancer screening forms, or spin a prize wheel with the Culture department. Cow Creek’s Housing team provided fall-themed family photos that were printed and customized onsite.
This year’s iteration of the event had its widest array of volunteers yet, including institutions from outside the Cow Creek umbrella. Featured organizations included:
- Behavioral Health
- Health and Wellness Center
- Public Health
- Social Services
- Tribal Police
- OHSU Knight Cancer Center
- Thrive Umpqua
- Umpqua Doula Collective
Cow Creek Public Health would like to extend their thanks to all volunteers and attendees who made the health fair possible, and asks for any feedback for future health fairs to be directed to their feedback survey: https://cowcreek.sjc1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b2POOMnvWXUS0ES
