Community residents are invited to participate in the fourth annual health fair/street fair, June 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the campus of the Brookdale University Hospital-Medical Center, East 98th Street (rear entrance to the Hospital) from Hegeman Avenue to Amboy Street.

People of all ages — from tots to grandparents — are invited to participate in health screenings and obtain information from the many Brookdale departments that are participating in the fair.

Participants will be able to learn about good nutrition for the whole family, diabetes and hypertension, the use of the emergency department, self-examination for breast cancer, HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases, bariatric surgery and hyperbaric medicine and wound healing, among others.

There will also be many activities for children including face painting, magician and lots of other surprises. Vendors and delicious food will compliment the festivities.

Brookdale will provide an opportunity for local community boards and other organizations involved in community betterment to have tables of information of value to families attending the fair.

The police precincts will join with tables on the prevention of domestic violence and drug education, and the fire department will be there to give fire safety demonstrations.
