Cairo church plans health fair on Saturday

THOMASVILLE — A Cairo church will invest time in the health of the community on Saturday from 8 a.m.,-noon with free health screenings provided by Archbold Memorial Hospital.

Faith Temple Church, located at 231 Legion Blvd. SW, Cairo, will be hosting free screenings to help keep the community healthy. The screenings will include lipid profiles, glucose, blood pressure, pulse check, renal panel and urinalysis.

The purpose of each of these screenings it to provide a valuable resource to the community in order to prevent or possibly eliminate several health issues. According to Faith Temple Church’s pastor, Ambers Glenn, prevention is the key.

He said, “We are hoping to help take something and get it under control before it gets out of hand. Not everyone can pay for a doctor’s visit or have the time to wait in a doctor’s office. With this screening, it is free and can help people. It’s about preventing something from happening.”

Glenn and Faith Temple Church decided to take on the health screenings because of the concern they have for people’s health.

Glenn added, “If people can get control of their health, they will feel better and have a more positive outlook on life. Good health can benefit the community.”
