One of the UMB Student National Medical Association’s (SNMA) biggest events is the annual, one-day, free health fair, CommUNITY FEST at Lexington Market. This year’s event will be held Saturday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In an effort to promote good health among Baltimore residents, the CommUNITY Fest provides numerous health screenings, resources, and activities that people of all ages can enjoy. An array of services offered at the fair include but are not limited to blood pressure screenings, diabetes screening, HIV/AIDS testing, dietary and nutrition information, flu shots, and immunizations. We hope that as a result of the health education and promotion efforts we will foster a healthier Baltimore one family at a time.
More than 300 Baltimoreans come and benefit from the health fair each year. This is a collaborative effort involving not only the various University of Maryland schools (medicine, pharmacy, dental, nursing, physical therapy), but also local organizations and the Baltimore City Health Department.
