What do healthy partnerships look like? Physicians providing information and screenings free of charge, representatives from over 30 different vendors offering free vision and blood pressure checks, impaired driver testing, and handing out free healthy snacks, gifts, reading glasses and childrens’ books. American Red Cross, WIC (Women, Infant and Children, Marquette Dental School, and Milwaukee Police Department’s McGruff, the Crime Fighting Dog were among the presenters, plus over a dozen medical student associations including the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) which sponsored the 2012 Annual Community Health Fair at Neighborhood House.
For entertainment, Signature Dance Company promoted physical activity through spiritual dance in a multi-generational performance. Our NH teens deserve a special high-five for their efforts in hosting and photographing the event. Over seventy people attended.
