Almost 70 people including tenants, community residents, and the general public participated in the Free Health Clinic sponsored by Carroll Gardens Association, Inc., in collaboration with Preferred Health Partners. The Health Fair was held on Friday, October 29th, 2010 from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. at the CGA Office located at 201 Columbia Street, Brooklyn, New York. People of all ages, including parents with children and the elderly, received free health screening including high blood, diabetes, and cholesterol testing, as well as vision testing for children. Gynecologists were on hand to answer questions regarding women’s health issues. Participants also received free health education materials and giveaways.
Children enjoyed the presence of Mr. Clown who entertained them with his tricks and balloons. Food and refreshments were served to attendees.
