Auburn Gresham Spring Health Fair On The Block
May 31 at 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Nearly ten years ago, Greater Auburn Gresham Development Corporation’s (GAGDC) first health fair featured about half a dozen booths in the parking lot, and half of those were from the local health clinic and vendors supporting school based health programs. Now, GAGDC blocks off the street between Racine and May, on 79th Street, and offers free health screenings (glucose and blood pressure), free HIV testing and businesses consisting of pharmacies, various groups, held healthy food demonstrations, and shared literature and fun giveaways to help spread the awareness and knowledge around key health disparities across southside communities, like Auburn Gresham. This year, like many was a success because of a key relationship and recurring sponsorship by CVS Health.
