Pelham church spreads the health

July 22, 2006

Albany -- A community outreach event by a Pelham church wants to make South Georgians healthier.

Lighthouse Community Church gave some free groceries to some who came out to the health fair, in addition a slew of information on health and medicine. Several healthcare professionals offered services including free glucose, cholestorol, and blood pressure screenings.

The church is offering the fair free of charge simply to help others. "We're just reaching out into the community, and we're helping people as far as their health, just giving them information, helping them out," said Health Fair Coordinator Judy Ramnauth.

 "We have a high sense of obligation to reach out to the members of the community, to provide them with education when it comes to health care, to do screens and understand what their risk factors are," said Mitchell County Hospital Administrator Mark Kimball.

Today was the very first health fair hosted by the church. Organizers hope to make it a bi-annual event. The next is scheduled to take place in March in Pelham.
