Event Encourages Healthy Habits

Fit and healthy was the focus of a heath fair Saturday afternoon.

The Wichita Falls Family Health Center hosted the free event at the MPEC. Attendees learned about everything from diet and nutrition to disease prevention. Free dental and eye screenings were also available.

More than 20 doctors were available to diagnose health problems at the event. "Our emphasis is to educate the community on how to stay healthy," said Dr. Ahmed Mattar. "Preventative medicine, basically. That comes down to keeping you weight under control, exercising, eating healthy and obviously stop smoking."
