Health Fair to Benefit BMH Oncology Dept. February 18

The second annual Dennis Roth Memorial Farmer’s Market and Health Fair will take place on Saturday, February 18, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the United Church of Bernardston in Massachusetts.

Dennis Roth was a minister in the greater Brattleboro area who died of cancer almost two years ago. In appreciation of the treatment he received, Roth’s family started the fair to raise awareness and charitable support for the Oncology Department of Brattleboro Memorial Hospital.

Health Fair activities will include eye and ear testing, meditation, dancing, Zumba, yoga and a Red Cross blood drive. Local farmers will be selling meats, produce and other locally sourced products.

The United Church of Bernardston is located at 58 Church Street in Bernardston, Massachusetts. For more information, email Steve Damon at damons_of_gill@yahoo.com. To make a blood drive appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS.

The Oncology Department at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital is an outpatient clinic which is open five days a week to serve patients and their families who are experiencing cancer. The staff consists of board-certified medical oncologist/hematologists and certified oncology nurses including a nurse practitioner/clinical nurse specialist.
