The Health Fair Expo took place at the Loma Linda University Seventh-day Adventist Church during the year of 1981. The church is located at 11125 Campus Street, Loma Linda, CA 92354, and the event took place in the fellowship hall on Sunday, April 26 and Monday, April 27. The Health Fair Expo provided free health screening for different things on both days. 

On Sunday a participant could have a health history done, a diet analysis, a dermatological exam, a breast exam, a dental screening; or they could have their blood pressure checked, be checked for anemia, or have a general health history done. On Monday participants could have foot testing, torso testing, vision acuity testing, glaucoma testing, a pulmonary analysis, and have their height and weight measured. Plus on Monday participants could have a summary and referral done. Blood chemistry tests were available with a small charge for adults eighteen or older. Some sponsors for the event included Chevron, Hospital Council of Southern California (HCSC), American Red Cross, and 4NKNBC, the local news channel.
