On Saturday, August 9, 2014, 11:00am – 5:00pm, The McKinney Foundation will host their Signature Event Health Expo at KIDS ROW on Belle Isle Park in Detroit. We are expecting record breaking support for this event. All Greater Detroit communities and families are invited! The EXPO is designed to Empower, Enlighten, and Educate! It’s a fun-filled event with a serious purpose.
This premier back-to-school, end-of-the-summer, health EXPO will be EPIC! Recent primary front runner and incumbent/US Congressman John Conyers, Jr. will be the highlighted Guest Speaker along with many of Detroit’s top politicians including City Council Members Mary Sheffield, Raquel Castaneda-Lopez, and Brenda Jones; Wayne County Commissioner Martha Scott; State Representatives Rashida Tlaib, Alberta Tinsley-Talabi, and David Nathan.
This year’s health expo offers interactive health seminars led by Michigan’s finest doctors, back-to-school immunizations provided by Walgreens, pre-Diabetes education and BMI screening, youth dental screenings, face painting /mobile library courtesy of Detroit Public Library, healthy cooking demonstrations and tastings , hourly give-a-ways, prizes, DJ and “live” entertainment. Enjoy!
