Multicultural Health Fair Planned in Houston, Texas

June 15, 2007

On Saturday, the first Houston Juneteenth Multicultural Health Festival will take place from noon to 6 p.m. at Tom Bass Park, 3452 Fellows Rd. Presented by UnitedHealth Group, the fair will focus on the leading causes of death among blacks and other ethnic groups -- including cancer, HIV/AIDS, chronic lower respiratory disease, sudden infant death syndrome, stroke, diabetes, obesity, heart and kidney disease, and homicide. Activities will be offered in seven zones; the Washington Mutual Health Zone will feature screenings for blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, hepatitis, and HIV. "Juneteenth" marks the day, June 19, 1865, when slaves on Galveston Island learned they had been freed by the Emancipation Proclamation, which took effect on Jan. 1, 1863. The festival is free; visit www.houstonhealthfestival.com.
