SOUTH LOS ANGELES, Calif., July 31, 2016 - Health Net teamed up with Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Health Braintrust, Congressional Representatives Karen Bass (D-California) and Robin Kelly (D-Illinois) and Ward African Methodist Episcopal Church to host a free Church Community Health Fair on Sunday.

In collaboration with Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital, Watts Health Center, Kindred Community Mental Health Center, church goers and community members learned the importance of lifestyle behaviors on health and wellbeing. This unique community health fair offered a variety of health screenings, including glucose and blood pressure, HIV, mental health, and other fun activities for the family, such as Zumba classes, massage stations and giveaways.

In addition, many attendees who visited the health and wellness stations received free reading glasses, oral hygiene products and back-to-school supplies. For more information on Health Net, Inc., please visit Health Net’s website at www.healthnet.com.
