FREE SCREENINGS, RESOURCES AT HEALTH FAIR
The Heart 2 Heart Program Hosts a Community Celebration with Food, Fun, and Resources

Berkeley, California (Thursday, June 22, 2017) - Receive screenings for blood pressure, dental, chiropractor, HIV and Hepatitis C as part of a health fair this Saturday put on by Berkeley Public Health and our partners.

Those who come can also connect to resources, information and services, including those from our Public Health Division, Lifelong Medical Care or one of the 30 local health and social service agencies on site.

Heart to Heart Health Fair
Saturday June 24
11 am - 3 pm
near the entrance to the Frances Albrier Community Center
2800 Park Street in South Berkeley.

A children's "Kid Zone" will have activities, games, and face painting. We'll also have wellness classes, Latin Fusion aerobic dance, yoga and some beginner tai chi that will get your body moving. There will also be a free raffle - with prizes donated by prominent regional businesses!

The event is part of a larger effort by Berkeley Public Health to address health inequities identified by our Health Status Report, such as hypertension and heart disease. The Heart to Heart program is a collaboration with LifeLong Medical Care and residents.

This Saturday's celebration represents the seventh anniversary of the Heart to Heart Mobile Health Van, which hosts events on the corner of Oregon Street and Sacramento in Berkeley, typically on the 4th Saturday of the month from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM.

Other Heart to Heart projects include our monthly Barbershop Health Hubs, which occur every 3rd Friday of the month from 11 - 1 pm, at the three barbershops in South Berkeley.

We also hold an annual job and education fair in the fall each year - with the intent to connect participants to employment, educational, and vocational opportunities. We have a mini-grant program, in which we support community driven efforts that are in-line with reducing health inequities in the Heart to Heart neighborhood.

Our health advocate program trains people that live, work, play, or pray in the community on various health related topics, such as chronic disease prevention, hypertension, navigating through the health care system. The goal is to have those trained share this information to others within their community - with the overall goal of supporting and empowering a healthy community.
