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.
