Brookland Foundation 14th Annual Community Health Fair
West Columbia, SC – The Health and Wellness Program at the Brookland Foundation (BF) is hosting its 14th Annual Health Fair in the Brookland Baptist Church’s Health and Wellness Center located at 1066 Sunset Boulevard, Saturday, March 8, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. This year’s theme is “An Extraordinary Lifestyle: Inspired, Motivated, and Empowered”.
The community health fair provides screenings for nearly 500 – 600 people annually for Breast Cancer, HIV/Aids, Prostate Cancer, Hypertension/Heart Disease, Kidney Disease, Sickle Cell Anemia, and Diabetes. Due to the great support of our sponsors in 2013, we were able to assist with a variety of community service programs which included several area scholarship funds for students pursuing a career in the medical profession, scholarships for free sports physical exams for middle and high school children playing organized sports within their school districts and CPR/AED training. It is our goal to make a positive impact on the lives of the members of our congregation and our surrounding communities.
