Alpha Kappa Alpha, Calvary Baptist host health fair

The members of the Graduate Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. recently joined First Calvary Baptist Church’s Missionary Unit 6 to host a Health Fair and Breast Mobile.

The Rowan Breast Health Center Mammography Program, a part of Novant Heath Breast Cancer Center, sponsored the Breast Mobile.

Missionary Group 6 offered blood pressure checks, health information and nurses were available to answer questions. They also provided participants with healthy snacks.

The members of Delta Xi Omega Chapter were responsible for pre-registering participants and assisting with on site registration.

The Health Fair was held in the fellowship hall of First Calvary Baptist Church. The Rev. Leamon Brown was the host pastor and Renese Bates is the president of the local chapter.
