Free Health Care for Young People / Taking health care out of the offices and into the community, the Community Pre-School Health Project (CPHP) will present a free children's health fair April 12 and 13 at the Arbor Park Nursery, 3200 Braeburn Circle. / The fair will include on-site immunizations, vision and hearing assessments, oral exams, nutritional assessment and counseling, general physicals, lab tests, and free follow-up care for those requiring it. In addition, cartoons, filmstrips, day care activities and general health information and referral will be offered . / Sponsored by the Free People's Clinic and assisted by local health care people, day care people, students, and county health people, the CPHP has designed this program to promote health education, to provide on-going health fairs throughout Ann Arbor, and to encourage better use of existing health care facilities. / No child will be turned away from the assessment program but all children must be accompanied by an adult, preferrably a parent, and must present a history and consent form. These forms will be circulated throughout the neighborhood by volunteers the first week in April and will be available at the Arbor Park Nursery and and the Free People's Clinic, 225 E. Liberty. Children will be seen on a walk-in basis from 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. Saturday, April 1 2, and 1 P.M. to 5 P.M. on Sunday April 13. /  All children assessed at the fair will become patients of the Free Clinic where their medical records will be filed. Area pediatricians will provide follow-up diagnosis and treatment of any conditions discovered at the fair. For those families of moderate income, adequate funds are available to cover the costs of these followup services. For more information, call the Free Clinic at 761-8957.
