CareSouth Carolina to host Community Health Fair in Bishopville at school gym



BISHOPVILLE - CareSouth Carolina's upcoming Community Health Fair is coming up later this month to connect communities with a wide range of health care resources and support.

The fair will take place on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Bishopville High Memorial Gym, at 121 E. College St., Bishopville.

The event will include food, giveaways, health resources, family support services, health and wellness guidance and essential health screenings.

This is the second Community Health Fair organized by CareSouth Carolina, with the first one in Dillon last fall.

"Our Community Health Fair evolved from our community-focused engagements across all five counties," CareSouth Carolina Chief of Community Health Joe Bittle said. "While the community was aware that we offered health care, they did not know the diverse range of resources we offer, such as community health workers and navigators."

In addition to primary care, CareSouth Carolina offers internal medicine services, pediatrics, women's services, OB/GYN, HIV/AIDS primary care, infectious disease primary care, IV therapy, substance abuse prevention, dental and chiropractic services, pharmacy, senior support services, family support services, clinical counseling, laboratory, ultrasound, X-ray, agricultural worker health services and much more.

"Our commitment goes beyond medical care," Bittle said. "We conduct Community Needs Assessments to identify and address specific needs, providing assistance in navigation and various other aspects. We offer a complete set of services designed to help individuals meet their needs."
