If folks say that Americans verge on health addiction, they are likely telling you the truth. As part of a national health initiative, the Lambda Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority presented its annual Health Fair on May 21 at Carolina Mall in Concord.
Participating vendors from the local area represented a variety of health-related areas, including Health Alliance CMC, American Red Cross, Cabarrus County Senior Center, New York Life Insurance Company; Oracle, LLC and Duke Medicine to name a few. Visitors had a wide variety of displays and health-promoting activities to explore. A number of the on-lookers had no idea that resources existed in Cabarrus County such as support groups and counseling for caregivers, resources and special programs for the elderly, respite care, dental specialists for children and a number of other services and products.
