The Medical Campus of Miami Dade College will hold its seventh annual free community health fair at 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 25.
The event will offer services such as bone density screening, glucose and cholesterol tests, a limited number of free mammograms, and dental and vision screenings.
It will also include information on nutrition, heart disease and cancer prevention and a blood drive.
A “Stress Relief Zone” will offer services such as free chair massages and pharmacists from the Florida Pharmacy Association will provide medical information. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will also be on hand to answer questions.
In addition to medical services and screenings, there will also be a children’s corner with face painting, balloons, a bounce house and arts and craft activities.
The fair’s main goal is to provide health information and services to those who might not otherwise get regular medical attention.
“This year’s fair provides an opportunity to improve our community’s health and develop new strategies that will impact lives in a positive manner,” said Dr. Armando Ferrer, president, MDC Medical Campus.
The event is open to the public and is free of charge. The MDC Medical Campus is at 950 N.W. 20th St. in the Civic Center district of Miami’s Allapattah neighborhood.
