[ARCHIVED] Successful Health Fair held by Councilman Williams and Southwest Advisory Committee

Hundreds of Homestead residents were able to receive free health screenings during the September 28th Health Fair organized by Councilman Jimmie L. Williams, III and the Southwest Advisory Committee. The Health Fair, which took place in the newly renovated Blakey Park, located in the Southwest of Homestead, offered a casual yet confidential environment for all citizens to get their health questions answered by professionals.

Available at the fair were free screenings for blood sugar, blood pressure, confidential screenings for HIV and information on living with the disease, as well as information packets on losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The fairgoers also enjoyed the brand new facilities built in Blakey Park, including two playgrounds and outdoor exercise equipment; as well as a free lunch provided by the Florida City Panthers Cheerleaders and Councilman Williams.

“We are thrilled to have been able to provide much needed health services to the Southwest residents during the fair. So many people were able to take advantage of the free health screenings and enjoy a day out in the community,” said Councilman Williams. “Health care is about being informed and performing preventive care and testing. The health of our residents is the backbone of our families and our communities. I will continue to work with the Southwest Advisory Committee to offer much needed services in this area.”

The fair was supported by various South Florida health service providers and researchers, including Community Health of South Florida (CHI), Signature HealthCARE at Brookwood Gardens, BioCollections Worldwide, the Florida Heart Research Institute, the Florida Department of Health, the Florida Center for Allergy & Asthma Care, the Obamacare information team, and Celebrity Rehab & Medical Center.
