Everyone has a quote or bible verse(s) that they makes them say “ahh haa!” If I had to speak for the Health & Wellness Program from Brookland Baptist Church, I feel as if I know their verse(s). It would be 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV , where it says “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.” Serving as an extension of The Brookland Foundation, they have been an advocate for health. The organization hosted a community health fair for 18 years that is open to everyone and provides free health screenings for diabetes, hypertension, prostate cancer, peripheral circulation problems, vision, dental, sickle cell disease, heart disease, and much more. Onsite screening mammograms are provided through the Lexington Women’s Imaging mobile mammography unit (insurance filed). Additionally, the fair features numerous medical and health information booths.
I have been fortunate to capture many events for The Foundation. I was the official photographer for the annual Color Pink Breast Cancer Awareness for many years, dating back to 2011. Highly notable years were 2012, when Tamela Mann tore the roof off of the venue. Not to be outdone, 2014 left the crowd speechless after watching Michael Israel take paint and music to another level. 2017 saw saxophonist Dante Lewis rock the crowd!!! However in 2018, another great health fair was displayed. Spearheaded by my fellow Charles B. Jackson Singers choir member, Katrina Bridgette, the event was great!!! Here’s Trina welcoming the crowd
Listed below are a few images from that day …
The day ended with a group photo of the helpers. Another fabulous day in the community, with health being the underbelly of the success that was achieved by all that was in the number.
Here is a link to the images from the 18th Annual Community Health Fair.
