AllOne Charities Presents Check to Support Health Fair
On Friday, July 20th, 2018, AllOne Charities made a $2,500 check presentation to the Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress in operational support of the Downtown Farmer's Market and Health Fair. The Health Fair, which takes place in conjunction with the market on Fridays from 10:00AM-2:00PM, offers the opportunity for the public to meet with a variety of health practitioners who are offering free health screenings and educational information on health and wellness each week. Last week, for instance, the market hosted DeJesus Family Chiropractic offering spinal screening and educational information on back care, Lehigh Valley Health Network offering blood pressure screenings and oxygen level testing, and Amerihealth Cartias, who offered health education presentations on Maternity, Smoking Cessation, Adult Heart Disease and Asthma. A schedule of all other practitioners that will be participating each Friday through September 7th is available on the Alliance’s website: www.downtownhazleton.org. In addition, the Commission on Economic Opportunity hosts a healthy cooking demonstration each week using fresh seasonal produce from the market.
The Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress organizes the Farmer’s Market and Health Fair in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce. The Health Fair is being modeled after others that have been organized in Scranton and Wilkes Barre. Anyone interested in learning more about the market or health fair should contact Krista Schneider at 570-455-1509 x 109 for more information.
