A passport to wellness is promised at the Community Health Fair sponsored by Ward AME Church.

The event is set for Sunday, July 31, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., in the church’s Margaret Murray Fellowship Hall, 1177 West 25th St., in Los Angeles.

According to Pastor John E. Cager III, “This health fair will offer a wide range of free services for children, adults and families. We will also have activities such as Zumba, a farmer’s market and a variety of giveaways.”

Screenings will be available for blood pressure, body mass index, oral health, blood glucose, asthma, HIV and mental health/depression. The vision screening station will distribute free reading glasses and other stations will provide free gift cards, oral hygiene products and school supplies.

“In addition, a local soul food restaurant will prepare healthy meals. We urge the greater Los Angeles community bring your entire family and join us at the fair,” added Cager.

For more information, call Ward AME Church at (213) 747-1367.
