Newton -- Baker county focused on improving their community's health Saturday.

Residents were able to get information along with free screenings at the Baker County Health Center during their annual spring health fair.

They hope that by offering all of these resources in one place; it would make it easier for people to take the first steps in protecting themselves from chronic disease.

"It's important for our community to come out and come together. We are such a close knit community here, and we have such limited resources.

Its good to bring our partners in from our surrounding resources to share a lot of information when they just may get a little when they come here from to the health center," said Baker County Health Department Director, Christi Dixon.

Emergency management agencies also used this opportunity to inform Baker County residents about the steps they take to ensure public safety.
