This is a real question - I have never thought about this before...

Who paid for this ‘Health Fair’??

Is it our tax dollars at work to give Mr. Scott some face time??

Still haven't found anything regarding who pays, although it's a safe bet it's taxpayer funded.

This year’s event will focus on Diabetes as its theme and feature an array of FREE health screenings. In addition, participants can receive information on important health issues, participate in a blood drive, hear from special guest speakers, and enroll on-site in health assistance programs like Medicare, Medicaid, PeachCare, prescription drug assistance and others for the uninsured.

Even those with insurance only have screenings once a year, or every 10 years for some screenings. With all the above in place, where is the crisis? Don’t overhaul the entire system for a few who are falling through the cracks!
