MDC's Medical Center Campus to Host Second Annual Health Fair, Providing Free Medical Services to Community
For the second consecutive year, MDC's Medical Center Campus is hosting a Community Health Fair offering health information and services to those who may not otherwise have access to regular medical attention. The 2007 fair will take place on Saturday, Feb. 17, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Medical Center Campus, 950 N.W. 20 Street, Miami.
The Community Health Fair respresents another way MDC is reaching out to meet the needs of our community. Health fair attendees will have access to glaucoma, blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol tests, along with chair massages, dental and vision screenings, and information on nutrition, heart disease and cancer prevention.
In addition to these services, physicians will be onsite to follow up with individuals whenever necessary. Also, staff from the University of Miami School of Medicine's Pediatric Mobile Clinic will review immunization records and provide the age-appropriate vaccines, if needed, and a Free Coalition Mobile Unit will teach children and parents about home and car safety.
Thank you to Dr. K.K Bentil, president of the Medical Center Campus; Madeline Pumariega, Medical Center Campus' dean of students and administrative services; the members of the Health Fair Committee; and our sponsors: Care Access, TransAtlantic Bank, Florida Blood Centers, Miami-Dade Transit, American Medical Depot, the Miami-Dade County Commission and Univision, for their support and hard work in bringing these much-needed services to South Florida residents.
