Free Community Health Fair in South Dallas March 27, 2015 from 10am-1pm
Buckner International’s Wynnewood Family Hope Center in South Dallas is opening their doors to the community to promote health awareness for families on Friday, March 27 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the center located at 2006 Didsbury Circle.
Free services to the community include mammograms, blood pressure checks, HIV testing, dental screens, cholesterol, diabetes, immunizations, and asthma screenings.
To promote the center’s mission of community and family development, representatives from Parkland Hospital, Community Dental Care, Urban League of Greater Dallas, WellCare, Children on the Mend, iMed Health Training Center, Dallas County Health and Human Services, and the Dallas Police Department will present families with educational materials regarding information about the various services they offer.
“Our hope is that through community collaboration and support we can come together and help guide families toward good health while empowering them with education and resources,” said Cheryl Williams, director of the Wynnewood Family Hope Center. “We were thrilled to have our community’s backing as multiple health care professionals unite services under one roof for the purpose of strengthening families.”
The Wynnewood Family Hope Center cares for more than 120 vulnerable children in Dallas through after-school and summer day camp services. The goal of the program is to address each child’s unique needs with love and compassion, creating a safe learning environment for children to grow in character and self-confidence.
