ACC Empowers Minorities to Make Health a Priority

posted on: Mar 30, 2010

In recognition of Minority Health Awareness Month, on Thursday, April 1, 2010 the Arab American and Chaldean Council (ACC) will host a community health fair in partnership with the American Cancer Society, Detroit Community Health Connection, and Karmanos Cancer Institute from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at ACC’s Youth Recreation and Leadership Center located at 62 W. Seven Mile Road in Detroit.

The health fair, “Man Up For Your Health! Healthy Men Move Communities Forward” will provide the opportunity to focus on empowering minority male populations to adopt more of an active role in their personal health and to raise awareness of the community level factors that impact health. The health fair will offer free health screenings, health education materials, round table discussions, giveaways and refreshments.

For more information or if you plan to attend, please contact Kendra Brown at (248) 663-3414 or Kendra.Brown@cancer.org.
