All members of the surrounding communities are invited to come and participate in a wide variety of free health screenings and fun activities for the entire family. This year's health fair will promote physical activity, healthy eating, education and youth empowerment.
The event will feature the Memorial Healthcare Adult mobile van, the Blood Bank van and educational speakers will be addressing public health issues affecting the community such as hypertension, stroke and diabetes. Participating organizations include Memorial Healthcare System, Humana, United Health, Coventry, Allen Dental Inc., Tamil Pharmacy and Blood One providing many services like vision and health screenings, HIV testing, information on health care programs for low income and uninsured families, injury prevention, safety and wellness information.
The Covenant Food Distribution Ministry will be helping people in need of assistance to register for the food bank. There will also be a prayer team on location for special requests. Pastor Gary Gordon serves at Covenant and his favorite Bible passage are the words of Jesus in John 10:10 ‘I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly’. He says "Covenant aims to be instrumental in the well being of its community and thereby continue the healing ministry of Jesus, for body mind and spirit".
