2022 HEALTH FAIR NEWS
We are excited to announce that we are bringing our health fair back to North Omaha, at least a smaller version of it, on March 26, 2022! The health fair will take place at Omaha North High School. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 data and reports to ensure we are taking appropriate safety precautions for our members, partners and community.
BFHWA offers professional development opportunities for students or individuals who are seeking experience in community outreach and collaboration, marketing and media, and event planning.

After having to cancel the health fair these past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BFHWA has used this time to reflect, re-envision, and reposition ourselves in a manner that we believe will provide us a better opportunity to serve the North Omaha community in a more efficient and effective way.
