Date:10/17/2009

FRESNO, Calif., Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 40 local organizations will come together today as Anthem Blue Cross teams with the Lowell Neighborhood Resource Center to host the Celebrate Your Children, Celebrate You community health and wellness fair at Lowell Elementary School from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

As Fresno County watches its unemployment rate rise to 14.6 percent, the need for local health and community services has never been more important. "The impact of the economy is very real in Fresno and the effect that it has on the ability for residents to access needed health and social services becomes critical," said Dan Shydler, regional director, Anthem Blue Cross State Sponsored Business. "Today's event is a great example of how our community can come together to help meet the needs of our residents during very difficult times and we know that today more than ever families are relying on events such as this to access needed services."

Families attending the event can take advantage of free health and dental screenings that will be provided by Clinica Sierra Vista and Healthy Smiles. A local nutritionist will conduct nutrition workshops and cooking demonstrations to help provide families with ideas for healthy, family-friendly meals.

"We are very pleased to partner with Anthem Blue Cross to host this event; the needs in our community are very great at this time and their support to bring together all these organizations will make a difference to the families who take advantage of the screenings and services," said Connie Provencio, Lowell Neighborhood Resource Center.

Attendees will enjoy an afternoon of entertainment, food along with games and activities for children. Among the additional participants at the fair are: Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Reach out and Read Fresno County, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Central Valley Children Services Network, 4More Entertainment, California He
