Health Screenings Free to the Public
By Andrea Earnest
On Wednesday, May 5, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, the Allegheny County Department of Human Services will be holding a free event with health screenings and demonstrations at the South Park Fairgrounds. They will provide all-day entertainment and morning refreshment and a boxed lunch. This year’s theme is Live Strong! Live Long!
This is the second year of the event. Last year more than 2,500 older adults attended and 150 volunteers assisted. Most of the guests were transported by ACCESS from Senior Centers around the county, but the event is open to residents of other counties, also.
Among the sponsors this year are Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield (mealtime sponsor), Fifth Third Bank, and UMPC Center for Inclusion in Healthcare. More than 50 resource vendors will participate.
