Philadelphia, Pa.

In addition, the event will feature health screenings, including mammograms for Keystone Mercy members, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and seasonal flu shots. Activities will be available for children ages two and older and include exercise sessions and dental screenings.

The Health Ministry Program is a multifaceted, faith-based, health education and awareness program that aims to address health disparities among minorities. The program focuses on incorporating simple, preventive and positive health behaviors into everyday life in order to prevent, control and reverse chronic diseases and stress. By bringing local health care providers to churches, synagogues and mosques, the Health Ministry Program provides a safe and supportive setting in which men, women and children can learn about their health.
