Marquette, Mich. – (Great Lakes Radio News) – On our latest Upper Peninsula Health Plan (UPHP) Update, we were joined by Claudia Chavez-Rhoades, Quality Improvement Project Coordinator at Upper Peninsula Health Care Solutions (UPHCS).

Chavez-Rhoades explained that UPHCS is a subset under UPHP and is a network of community health care providers in the Upper Peninsula with a shared vision of collaborating together in areas that will provide UP citizens with access to high quality, affordable health care.

She said the two groups have been busy over the last several months planning the first-ever Marquette County Community Resource Fair, which will take place Friday, June 21 from noon to 4 p.m. at Lakeview Arena in Marquette.

Chavez-Rhoades said the goal of the fair is to connect Marquette County residents directly with local organizations that are available to assist and support their day-to-day health and social needs.

She said the resource fair is free and open to the public, with no tickets or registration are required, so she encouraged everyone to stop by and learn more about the resources and services available to help our community.
