Date:5/23/2008

Kicks off June 21 in Discovery Green Park

HOUSTON, May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- With health care emerging as a top issue in this year's presidential election and the cost of health care continuing to rise, the second annual Houston Juneteenth Multicultural Health Festival (HJMHF) will offer Houston residents a fun and informative opportunity to focus on health enhancement for the entire family.

The multicultural health event, which will kick off June 21, seeks to promote the importance of living an active, healthy lifestyle among minorities by offering FREE health screenings, a health conference, parade, Real Men Cook competition, Guinness World Record Couples Salsa Dance, fitness demonstrations, live entertainment and a list of other activities in Houston's premier downtown park attraction - Discovery Green.

The health event is FREE and open to the public. It will highlight health issues related to African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans. The event will operate from 12 p.m. until 6 p.m.
