“Monitoring your health and identifying potential illnesses and diseases early is incredibly important, that’s why we are inviting any and all Camden residents to join us, get screened, and get educated on their body and their health,” said Camden County Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the Department of Health and one of the speakers scheduled for the event.

Attendees can participate in health-promoting activities, including yoga.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 14 at the Salvation Army KROC Center at 1865 Harrison Ave. in Camden.
