HEALTH INITIATIVE FOR MEN AND WOMEN SET FOR SATURDAY, AUGUST 19TH

Written by Matt Davis on August 4, 2017. Posted in News/Weather

The 16th annual Health Initiative for Men and Women is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 19th from 8 am until noon at the Floyd County Health Department, 16 East 12th Street in Rome.  The event is once again being sponsored by the 100 Black Men of Rome.

This will mark the second year for a women’s portion to be included in the health fair.  Erin Hernandez, Executive Vice President of the Northwest Georgia Regional Cancer Coalition, says that her organization previously held a health fair just for women at a later date in the year.  The decision to combine their event with the popular Health Initiative for Men was sparked by a desire to better showcase community resources in a more convenient manner to local residents.

HIM Plus (to which the event is now referred) will feature free screenings, educational opportunities, vendors and door prizes.

Hernandez muses that she is always impressed with tales of year-over-year progress in the health of those who attend the event annually.

An appointment is required for mobile mammography and can be made by calling (706) 509-6840 (request option one).  Space is limited.

Those who plan to attend this year’s Health Initiative for Men and Women are advised by Hernandez to arrive early.
