WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains Hospital will hold its 37th annual Neighborhood Health Fair on Saturday, April 26th, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Thomas H. Slater Center.

The Thoma H. Slater Center is just a few blocks from White Plains Hospital at Fisher Court, near Quarropas Street and the courthouse.

The daylong event will include screenings for diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, breast and prostate cancers, and HIV testing. Lab tests will be done for sickle cell disease and high cholesterol. Experts will be available to answer questions and distribute information on various health topics.

More than 500 people from White Plains and neighboring communities are expected to receive free health screenings and information at the fair. Refreshments will be provided, and entertainment, including a lunchtime Zumba workshop, will be available. The Junior League of Westchester will also be providing an interactive Kids in the Kitchen workshop to educate children on healthy snack and meal preparation.

The Neighborhood Health Fair involves collaboration from the hospital and several community groups, including El Centro Hispano Inc., Calvary Baptist Church, the Thomas H. Slater Center and the White Plains Housing Authority.
