2nd Annual Health Fair

24 Oct

On Saturday, October 21st, Holy Ghost held its 2nd annual health fair with much success! Griffin Hospital returned this year with its mobile health resource van, along with several nurses, and screened local residents for diabetes, administered blood pressure screenings and performed stroke assessments.  It was a free service in which participants learned about the risk factors of stroke, warning signs, prevention, and steps for taking action.  PIVOT Ministries once again partnered with Holy Ghost and prepared a free lunch for those in attendance, as well as shared their vocal talents.  New to the fair was United Illuminating and their Energy Efficiencies Solutions team, offering energy audits to local residents.  The City of Bridgeport Department of Aging also attended for the first time and provided information on the free services they offer the city’s seniors.  Children that attended with parents enjoyed decorating pumpkins.  It was a beautiful day and a great way to meet local residents and enjoy fellowship.
