The City of Temecula Gets Fit at the Health and Community Resource Fair
Have an ache, pain, symptom or medical question, but haven’t had a chance to see a doctor? Log off Web MD and head down to the Temecula Civic Center and Town Square this weekend, where the medical and wellness professionals you need are all in one convenient place.
On Saturday, September 27th, the City of Temecula is hosting its 4th Annual Health & Community Resource Fair at the beautiful new city hall complex in Old Town.
“The purpose of the fair is to educate and inform the community of all local and regional health related resources available to them and, of course, to promote safety, wellness and inclusion,” Yvette Martinez, Inclusion Services Specialist for the City of Temecula said during a recent interview. “The fair will offer free health screenings, assessments, health-related resources, safety awareness, emergency preparedness, a kid zone and much more.”
For this year’s fair, the city has partnered with some of the best in the business to provide health and wellness information to the attendees, including Rady Children’s Hospital, LoBue, Regal Medical Group, Lakeside Community Healthcare, Valley Physicians Network, Brookdale Senior Living Solutions, Care 1st Health Plan, Loma Linda University Medical Center, Lucid Speech & Language, Molina Healthcare, South Coast Senior Assist, Humana, and Senior Care Referral Specialists.
The major contributing partner is one of the newest members of Temecula’s professional community, Temecula Valley Hospital, who will be presenting a unique “Ask the Doctor” question and answer session for those in need of specific advice and information.
“The Health & Community Resource Fair is a great opportunity for individuals, families, and professionals to network, attain valuable information and get free screenings all in one place,” Martinez said.
The event will kick off with a special welcome from Mayor Maryann Edwards and will feature live entertainment, demonstrations and seminars, both inside City Hall and the conference center. Dozens of vendors in the fields of health care, wellness and lifestyle needs will be set up in town square.

The Health and Community Resource Fair is a free event, targeting the entire family.
“Bring the kids for an up close opportunity to view a City of Temecula fire truck, police car or motorcycle,” Martinez said. “We will have a kid zone offering a snow cone machine, snacks, arts & crafts, jumper, games and much more. Additionally, we will have Heart Beats Drumming offering free drum circles for all ages and much more entertainment.”
The City of Temecula has a stellar reputation for providing excellent opportunities in recreation, culture, and education to their residents and the 4th Annual Health and Community Resource Fair is just one more example of why this community is truly one of a kind.
“One of the core values of Temecula is to provide a Healthy & Livable City,” Martinez said. “It is important to the City of Temecula to promote and support healthy and active lifestyles and we welcome all ages and abilities from the community to come out and participate in this free event.”
