2017 - Senior Health Fair

Sep 12, 2017 10:00 AM to Sep 12, 2017 02:00 PM

 

The Brookins Funeral Home, Alderman Howard Brookins, Jr. and Commissioner Stanley Moore would like to cordially invite you to participate as a vendor in the 5th Annual Brookins Senior Health Fair Celebration!

 

Last year nearly 100 attendees and more than 30 vendors participated in our Health Care Celebration. This is a great opportunity for businesses, organizations, not for profits and health care agencies to “highlight” your products and services to local residents.

 

We are seeking health care services for adults and seniors. These services include, blood pressure test, dental hygiene care, eye care, mammograms, asthma treatments and other health care related services. We will provide free food and soft drinks for our participants, along with other giveaways from the vendors.

 

This is Brookins way of promoting wellness among our seniors and making them aware of the various services and opportunities available for them. It is also a great way to support our efforts to promote investment, development, senior connection, and peace in the community.

 

We sincerely hope you will complete the application form and return it no later than July 21, 2017. To fill up the form, please click the link below.
