Juneteenth I-CAN Health Fair

By Floyd Miller



We are reaching out to the professional medical community to come and be a part of the JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION in Stevenson Park. We need your help to reach hundreds of medically un-served and underserved African Americans. We have tried for many years to get this portion of the population to attend the health fairs in our city. This year, we plan to take the health fair to the people who need it. Juneteenth is a time when {{more}} this target population are gathered in the park for food, entertainment and celebration. We believe that we can make a difference in their medical health by providing information, education and testing on site. If you would join with us and provide a booth from your health care agency, we would be very appreciative. We are asking that you would bring your own table, table cover, chairs and a gift basket for a drawing at your booth. We can provide signage, if necessary, and name tags. We can also work with your need for electricity. Scripture says in 3 John 1:2, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in good health, even as thy soul prospereth.” There are many other scripture that talk about our health and the blessing that it has. I-CAN HEALTH FAIR 2008 WILL BE HELD IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE JUNETEENTH CELEBRATION—JUNE 19, 2008IN STEVENSON PARK—10 AM—5 PM Please contact one of us to ensure that you have a booth reserved in your agency’s name. Thank you in advance for your participation in this event. We are praying for a successful event.
