HEALTH & WELLNESS EXPO

The Health and Wellness Expo was created in response to the growing community concern regarding preventive health screenings.

Health & Wellness Expo  

The Health & Wellness Expo was created based on community concern of accessible preventative health care measures. GNC has made it a goal to host this Expo twice a year in the city of Chicago and also in surrounding suburbs to try and make this Expo accessible to Ghanaians and the general public in both areas The most recent Health & wellness Expo took place October 13, 2018, at the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, 741 E. 84th Street, Chicago IL in conjunction with ELAB.  Approximately 200 members of the Ghanaian and Chicagoland community were screened, tested, and received medical consultations.

 

A dedicated team of volunteer healthcare professionals including, pharmacists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and doctors discussed preventative medicine and wellness screenings including cholesterol, diabetes, and blood pressure were provided free of charge. Social medical workers were also present to offer participants free available healthcare resources.

The next Health And Wellness Expo is scheduled for Saturday May 11, 2019 from 11am-5pm at Christian Faith International Ministries, 1237 Windham Parkway,Romeoville, IL 60446. This event is free and open to the public. 

The community health fair is to help individuals be healthier by seeking to engage the public in conversation about common health issues and concerns. 

 

We are looking for healthcare volunteers that are willing to share their knowledge and join us on May 11th!!
