Langevin to Host Free Health Fair in South County

May 1, 2002
(Warwick, R.I.)–Congressman Jim Langevin today announced that he will host a free health fair this Monday, May 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the South Kingstown Senior Center, 25 St. Demenic Road in Wakefield.

 Langevin’s health fair will offer free blood pressure testing, cholesterol and diabetes screening, counseling, information and assistance with federal programs and much more.

 “Preventative medicine is crucial to keeping Rhode Islanders healthy and leading full, active, independent lives,” said Congressman Langevin.  “This health fair will provide people with an opportunity to take advantage of free screenings to assess their medical health.  Far too often, we hear of illness that could have been prevented had it been detected at an earlier stage.”

 Langevin will make brief comments at 12 noon sharp.

 The University of Rhode Island, CVS and South County Hospital have all donated supplies and personnel.
