Adelphi Health Fair Promotes Preventive Care

Hundreds of Prince George’s County residents benefited from a health fair held by Mary’s Center and the National Hispanic Medical Association on May 2nd in Adelphi, Maryland.

The fair featured free blood pressure and blood sugar screenings and free reading glasses, as well as health awareness activities to remind the community that poor health can lead to more serious health concerns if problems are not addressed early.

Participants, including children from Cool Spring Elementary School, also received bags of free farmer’s market produce, to encourage them to adopt a healthy diet.

The students from Cool Spring also enjoyed doing exercises with Ernestine Shepherd, the World’s Oldest Female Body Builder according to the Guinness Book of Records (shown in pink above).

The event was made possible by the generous support of Centene Corporation.
