Health Fair to Focus on Preventative Medicine

Medical tests and health insurance information will be available at the Project Prevent Health Fair from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, at the Anvil Building, 1505 Eutaw Place in Baltimore.

Sponsored by Project Prevent, an undergraduate student group at The Johns Hopkins University, the health fair is designed to provide preventative medical services to Baltimore City's low-income population.

Free or low-cost tests for diabetes, depression, high blood pressure and lead poisoning will be administered by health care providers. Vision tests, literature about breast cancer and information about children's health insurance will be available as well. Participants include the Baltimore City Health Department, the Maryland Children's Health Choice Program, the Arthritis Foundation and CHAMP -- the Church Community Health Awareness and Monitoring Program.

Admission to the health fair is free and it is open to the public. For more information, call Nina Pirzadeh or Lily Daniali at (410) 889-0289 or e-mail project_prevent@hotmail.com.
