Focusing on health disparities in the African American community
Four St. Paul congregations are joining forces, for the second year, to raise awareness around the importance of health and wellness. The “Know Your Numbers” health fair will take place at Mt. Olivet Baptist Church, 451 Central Avenue W, St. Paul, on Saturday, Sept. 18, 10 am to 1 pm. The goal is to promote healthy lifestyles by empowering people through education and screenings, while creating increased awareness of community resources that are available to individuals and families.
This is an interdenominational activity involving: Camphor Memorial United Methodist Church, Mt. Olivet Baptist Church, Pilgrim Baptist Church, and Resurrection Temple. The congregations are part of a larger health initiative under the auspices of the Stairstep Foundation called “There Is A Balm”.
