A passport to wellness is promised at the Community Health Fair sponsored by Ward AME Church.

The event is set for Sunday, July 31, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., in the church’s Margaret Murray Fellowship Hall, 1177 West 25th St., in Los Angeles.

The theme is “Your Journey to Health Begins Here.” U.S. Representatives Karen Bass and Robin Kelly (D-IL) will be the special guests.

According to Pastor John E. Cager III, “This health fair will offer a wide range of free services for children, adults and families. We will also have activities such as Zumba, a farmer’s market and a variety of giveaways.”

Screenings will be available for blood pressure, body mass index, oral health, blood glucose, asthma, HIV and mental health/depression. The vision screening station will distribute free reading glasses and other stations will provide free gift cards, oral hygiene products and school supplies.

“In addition, a local soul food restaurant will prepare healthy meals. We urge the greater Los Angeles community bring your entire family and join us at the fair,” added Cager.
