Peaks Fest

Traditionally the Peaks Island Health Center participates in the annual community-wide celebration of life on Peaks called “Peaks Fest”. The health center staffs an informational table during Saturday’s Dock-Day.

When possible board members and staff interact with the community to conduct blood pressure checks and provide information on various health subjects. In the past these checks included: Tick Identification and Tick Borne Illnesses, Organ Donation, Vial of Life and other topics of interest. We have even sponsored a fun way to exercise using hula hoops called “Extreme Hooping”.
