MDC Medical Center Campus Hosts Free Community Health Fair Feb. 26

Miami, FL Miami Dade College (MDC) is hosting its 6th Annual Free Community Health Fair at 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 26, at the Medical Center Campus. Services being offered at the fair include glaucoma, glucose and cholesterol tests; a limited number of free mammograms; and dental and vision screenings. There will also be information on nutrition, heart disease and cancer prevention; a blood drive and much more. The MDC Health Fair is free and open to the public.

Free shuttle transportation to the fair will be available at the Culmer Metrorail Station, beginning at 8 a.m. the day of the fair.

A “Stress Relief Zone” will include free chair massages and other services, as well as on-site pharmacists from the Florida Pharmacy Association providing medical information and bone density screenings.

For several years, the Medical Center Campus has been offering the fair and many services to the community. Care Access will be providing physicians on-site during the health fair to follow-up with individuals who receive questionable health screening results. In addition to medical services and screenings, there will also be a “Children’s Corner” with face painting, balloons, a bounce house, arts and crafts and more.

The fair’s main goal is to provide health information and services to those who might not otherwise get regular medical attention. “This year’s fair provides an opportunity to improve our community’s health and develop new strategies that will impact lives in a positive manner,” said Dr. Armando Ferrer, president, MDC Medical Center Campus.
