Borough President Melinda Katz is sponsoring her first in what she says will be a series of health and wellness fairs this Sunday in Howard Beach.

The event, to be held in conjunction with Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, HealthFirst and MetroPlus, will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 83-09 157 Ave.

The fair will have a number of free activities and services including health screenings, stress reduction tips, yoga and Zumba classes, services for seniors, fire safety and emergency-preparedness training and giveaways. Attendees will also be able to sign up for the bone marrow registry. There will be face painting for children, a DJ, and for parents who are interested, Ident-A-Kid will be in attendance to speak about their child safety program.

“Please take some time to come out and take advantage of the many free services that will be available at the event,” Katz said in a statement. “There is nothing more important than taking steps to safeguard our health.

For more information on the fair and future events, contact Dan Brown at (718) 286-2853 or dbrown@queensbg.org.
