The 19th Annual Children's Health Day

The Change Happens! Children’s Health Day fair is an annual event held in collaboration with Almeda Mall in order to help prepare families and youth for the start of the school year. Held every August, the Children’s Health Day fair attracts thousands of visitors from across the Houston area seeking information and resources that will equip them for success throughout the school year. Since 2001, the Children’s Health Day fair has grown to over 80 participating vendors and local health providers that offer attending families important health related information, products and services.
