The Wichita Falls Family Health Center hosted a health fair Saturday at the Ray Clymer Exhibit Hall.

Doors opened at 9 a.m. and closed at 1 p.m.

The first 150 people who showed up received free lab screenings.

"The purpose of the event was to increase awareness about preventative medicine, healthy lifestyle and trying to avoid getting into health problems," said Dr. Ahmed Mattar, program director of the Wichita Falls Family Practice Residency Program.

Physicians also provided medical advice for the entire family and attendees learned about everything from diet and nutrition to disease prevention.

Other free services that were provided include eye screening, medical and behavior counseling, diabetes testing and much more.

The center even offered a "Discover Your Health Age" test.
