Event attendees will be provided the opportunity to learn more about the free or low-cost health insurance plans that YourCare offers, as well as their benefits and wellness programs. Refreshments, including fresh popcorn from DocPopcorn, giveaways, children’s activities, and photo-ops with the YourCare bear mascot will be included.
