Covered California is hosting the Healthy Kids Day event on Saturday, October 3rd from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the Sleep Train Arena. Healthy Kids Day is aimed to help the community of Sacramento gather information on matters such as dental, medical and vision services for children.
The Healthy Kids Day event will have various activities to help keep children stay safe and healthy such as flu shots for all ages, healthy lunches, a free farmers market, and much more.
“We’re doing dental screening for children and adults and of course, we’re providing health coverage information for everyone eligible for medi-cal or covered california,” says Kelly Bennett-Wofford, the Executive Director with Covered California. “We’re also enrolling (people in) a nutrition program such as Calfresh.”
Last year’s 14th annual event had many fun activities for children such as a smoothie bike, a hula hoop contest, and more. They also had the Sacramento Kings Dancers and the Grant High School drumline. If you need assistance on traveling to this event, there is a free shuttle service that will take people from South Sacramento straight to the event.
