Our Nations Energies: Health and Wellness Powwow
Fri., May 4, 5-9 p.m. and Sat., May 5, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. 2012
On the excitement scale, health fairs don't often surpass firetrucks and yoga demonstrations, but the annual Our Nations Energies: Health and Wellness Powwow
promises singing and dancing, arts and crafts, and a healthy-cooking contest. "If you say health fair, you don't always get people there. So we made it fun," says Angel Cully, community outreach coordinator of the Center for American Indian Community Health. From 5 to 9 tonight and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, get health screenings (cholesterol, diabetes, blood pressure, vision, lungs) and medical referrals, all for free, at Johnson County Community College (12345 College Boulevard, Overland Park, 913-469-8500).
