Purpose

In Celebration of National Hospital Week:
University Hospital of Brooklyn to Hold Community Health Fair

Continuing a tradition that began more than 20 years ago, SUNY Downstate Medical Center’s University Hospital of Brooklyn is extending an invitation to all residents of Brooklyn to attend its annual Community Health Fair. Rain or shine, it will take place on Saturday, May 16, from 11 am to 3 pm, 

 In addition to enjoying refreshments and entertainment, community residents will receive valuable health information and free screenings for asthma, high blood pressure, stroke, glaucoma, foot problems, sleep disorders, diabetes, cholesterol, prostate, and more. Health professionals will be on hand to conduct clinical breast exams and Pap tests, as well as tests for pregnancy and HIV.

Held during National Hospital Week, the fair highlights the contributions of health professionals who play such an important role in safeguarding the well-being of the community. This annual “open house” allows the public to see first hand the important work that University Hospital of Brooklyn performs.

SUNY Downstate is the only academic medical center serving Brooklyn’s more than 2 million residents. For more information about Downstate’s Community Health Fair, call 718-270-2020.
