Health Fair 2019

On October 12th The Kankakee NAACP held our annual Health Fair with partnership of The National Kidney Foundation ,St. Mary’s Hospital providing FREE Kidney and Diabetic Screening along with Walgreens providing Flu shots.

The NKF provided us with the stats which showed 53.1% of people tested in the abnormal range for one or both test.

I as Health Chair extend my humblest appreciation to all of the following:
The NKF, St. Mary’s Hospital,Hippocrates Clinic,KCCASA,KCC Nursing Students, Hispanic Partnership,Walgreens,Jewel Foods,NAACP Youth Counsel, Family, Friends and the Kankakee Library.

To the public. Whenever you hear of a Health Fair please take advantage of their services it could be a matter of your Life or Death. Your health is essential. Once again I thank The NKF for prevention and detection of Chronic Kidney Disease.

Thank you!

Mary Lacy
Health Committee Chair
