Events at the Park
14th Annual Health Expo
April 29 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Join the Center for Closing the Health Gap at the 14th Annual Health Expo, with our special guests ZAPP. Come on Saturday, April 29, 2017, in Washington Park from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. This year’s theme is Racism is deadly to your health.
The Health Expo is embarking on 14 years in Cincinnati yet, statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still reflect significant health disparities among minority groups both nationally and in Ohio.
The Health Expo remains the largest health fair in the Tri-State area to offer free health screenings for both adults and children. Since 2003, 25,000 free health screenings were performed through our partnerships with the city and local hospitals. The screenings offered include blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, body mass index, vision, dental, and much more. Fitness demonstrations, a talent show, and a children’s area will provide entertainment for all.
ZAPP will take the stage from 5p-6p!
