The South Dallas community consists of a number of people with poor health due to various socioeconomic reasons. As a result, members of our community have the highest mortality rate for the top 3 causes of death in Dallas County (heart disease, cancer, and stroke).
The East Gate Baptist Church Cancer Ministry is organizing it's 2nd annual community health fair to join in the many on-going efforts to help address the aforementioned health problems. Open to the public and for all ages.
Through various aerobic and food demonstrations, health screenings, and education by local organizations and businesses, we hope to inspire event attendees to "Be the Star of Your Health", and provide attendees with practical and inexpensive approaches to healthy living.
The heath fair will also include free food, many giveaways, demo on how to garden on your porch or other small areas (limited amount of free supplies), special appearance by Sparky the Dog and the Dallas Fire Engine, and much more.
If your organization or business would like to set up a booth at the health fair, send message to discuss. We request only businesses/organizations that provide health-related services.
