This past weekend New Bethel A.M.E. Church held a health fair and expo for residents in the area (near Deward Waters College). Onsite were various healthcare organizations providing adult and children health screenings. Screenings were provided to educate community residents on preventive medicine and public health intervention. Participants were provided with a hot lunch served by the New Bethel congregation and volunteers and over 50 children also learned the importance of healthy eating and exercise. New Bethel Pastor Harry L. Dawkins was enthusiastic, “this was a great day for the church and the community. Assisting the community with healthcare initiatives is a way to move our communities forward, mentally and spiritually.”
