Georgia Congressman John Barrow and Georgia Regents University hosted a community health fair at the Wilson Family Y today.
Vendors set up in the gym to give people in the CSRA free health checks.
People met one-on-one with medical professionals to get their blood pressure checked and to find out health information.
There were dental, breast cancer, and diabetes screenings for all.
Congressman John Barrow, (D) Georgia says, “I’m here to show my support for what they’re doing at GRU, but also to help sponsor this event, to try and raise awareness of the fact that there all kinds of screening techniques out there for folks to find out about conditions they’re not aware of.”
The free health checks only lasted for two hours, but sports physicals were also given to student athletes.
