Health Net teamed up with Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Health Braintrust, and Ward African Methodist Episcopal Church to host a free Church Community Health Fair on July 31.
Congressional Representatives Karen Bass (D-California) and Robin Kelly (D-Illinois) joined Ward members and community members to learn the importance of lifestyle behaviors on health and well-being.
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital, Watts Health Center and Kindred Community Mental Health Center also participated.
The fair offered health screenings including glucose and blood pressure, HIV, mental health, and activities such as Zumba classes, massage stations and giveaways. In addition, many attendees received free reading glasses, oral hygiene products and back-to-school supplies.
