On Saturday, May 21, 2022, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, Glen Mar Church is hosting a free community health fair to meet the needs (e.g., physical, emotional, and health) in our community. The target population for this health fair is the lower income households and families with children in Title 1 schools in Howard County. Due to cost of health care, COVID shutdowns, and fear, many have not been keeping up with their normal health check-up/issues during the pandemic years.
Information about the health fair has been distributed to several different groups. The first group is the Howard County COAD, which is a group of non-profits and churches. The second group is the Howard County Public School System Title 1 school Program Manager who will share with the 13 Title 1 schools in Howard County. The event is also posted on the HCPSS community news page, has been shared directly with St. John Baptist and AMES Memorial Churches, and with the WRBS 95.1 radio station.
