Check out your health at Porter Library's 2023 health fair

Learn more about taking care of your health and that of your loved ones at Westlake Porter Public Library’s annual health fair on Saturday, Nov. 4, from 1-4 p.m. The fair will include health screenings, health programs, information from various health groups, and a prize drawing.

“Chair Yoga” will take place from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Certified yoga instructor Jen Nebraska will guide participants in this gentle form of yoga done while sitting. Though seated, it still offers the benefits of yoga. From 2:30-3:30 p.m., Matt Gesicki from the Greater Cleveland Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness will lead a discussion about “Understanding Mental Illness.” Registration is required for both programs – please visit for additional information.

Available health screenings will include vision screenings, hearing screenings, balance screenings, and blood pressure & stroke risk assessments. All screenings will be done on a drop-in basis – no registration necessary. In addition to the screenings several area health-related organizations will be on hand to meet and talk with attendees. Organizations committed at print time include:

  • Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center
