The Pomona Graduate chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Epsilon Eta Omega, plans Second Health & Fitness Fair in collaboration with The City of Pomona, Pomona Unified School District, Western University, and The City of Hope on September 21, 2013.

The event will start with a walk-a-thon, followed by FREE health screenings valued up to $700 (diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, stroke assessment, dental, vision, body mass index, and more, Mammogram-by appointments). Health talks by professionals will include Asthma Prevention and Management, Hypertension, Diabetes, Oral Health, Cataracts, Nutrition, and Breast and Colon Cancers.

The objectives are to increase health awareness; motivate participants to make positive health behavior changes; teach self-care practices; and increase awareness of city, state, and national health services and resources. The day’s events will include a health scavenger hunt, various demonstrations; live electrifying music, displays, give-a-ways, and much more. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s health initiatives encourage personal fitness and healthy life styles.
