Community Health and Wellness Fair at ISD
Saturday March 28, 2015 @ 9:00 AM
Islamic Society of Delaware would like to invite our community members to a free health and wellness clinic day scheduled for Saturday March 28, 2015, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Many Doctors and health professionals, with support staff and equipment from their offices, will offer free health service to our community members. If you don’t have health insurance, this is a good opportunity to meet the health professional from our community, check your blood pressure, get screened for diabetes or Cholesterol, or even get free tips to stay healthy. If you have a doctor you can still consult to see if you are using the best medications available or if there are better ones you can use. For the community youth, if you are interesting in a career in health and medical fields you can also get the information you need from these health professionals.
In addition to the free health screening and lab work, there will be workshops and lectures to help our community stay healthy and be better prepared for any emergency.
