Garriott (just east of Chick Fila). Dan Schiedel, CEO of United Way of Northwest Oklahoma, said “Last year during the pandemic, Janet Cordell and I began talking about dental care and health needs for the uninsured and underserved individuals and families health needs that are going unmet in our community. So, we thought if we could put together a day for folks to get free dental services that it might help many who are in great need for this care.” Free rides to the event will be provided by the City of Enid and their public transportation system. A free lunch will be provided by the Salvation Army from 11 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. In addition to the dental component of the event, there will be a health resource fair held in the parking lot. Numerous nonprofit agencies, hospitals and clinics will be there to provide information. Also, the Garfield County Health Department will be providing vaccinations for COVID-19 for anyone eligible who has not yet had a vaccination. Cordell said, “Walk ups are welcome. Patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like more information please call 580-233-5300 and leave a message with your name and number and someone will get back to you with more information.”

 

Tables for the health fair are still available for anyone who would like to participate. Please contact Dan Schiedel at dan@unitedwayenid.org or by calling 580-237-0821 at United Way of Northwest Oklahoma.
