T.O.P.S. to host community health fair Saturday
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - The Ordinary People Society (TOPS) and Moma Tinas Missions House will host a community health fair Saturday, October 3.
“I picked October because I am a breast cancer survivor of 9 years. Thank God,” says Tina Glasgow, operator of Mama Tina’s Mission House.
The health fair will start with a March For Your Health. The march will go from Churches Chicken in Downtown Dothan to the TOPS offices at 805 North Lena Street.
“They will be marching for loved ones that are ill or for children that are ill,” says Glasgow.
That’s where the health fair will be set up. The health fair will run from 9 AM to 1 PM.
The health fair is supported by The Alabama Department of Public Health, Southeast Health, and Wallgreens.
COVID-19 information and testing is one of the services being offered. Masks will be provided for those attending the fair.
There will also be FREE:
- AIDS & HIV testing
- Blood Pressure and Sugar Check
- Cholesterol Information
- Nutrition Assessment
- Breast Cancer & Early Detection Information
- Adult & Children Health Information
In a perfect world, every test will come back negative and every assessment positive, but no matter what medical issues are discovered at the health fair, organizers hope learning about it early will make a difference.
“Instead of waiting five to ten years later when it gets to the point where you can’t work or can’t do nothing and it shuts you down you can go ahead and say hey this is what’s going on with me right now and then you can go get it checked,” says Mama Tina’s Mission Kitchen public relations officer Randilynn Horne.
In addition, there will be a free lunch provided and families can sign up for TOPS Lil Angels Tree.
