News Release: Humanity For Africa Foundation Hosts Health Awareness Forum/Fair

On behalf of the Advisory Board of the Humanity for Africa Foundation (HFAF), I am pleased to inform you that the Foundation in association with UMDNJ-University Hospital is hosting a Health Awareness Forum and Health Fair on Saturday, May 15, 2010, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at the UMDNJ Health Building, 185 South Orange Avenue, Grand Foyer, Newark, New Jersey.

The theme of this Health Forum/Fair is “Understanding Health Issues Facing Africans in Diaspora, Africans and African American Communities”, and it is designed to close gaps in health education and service delivery for African Americans and the African immigrant community in New Jersey.

The Forum will bring together members of the community, health scientists, public health workers and educators, advocates, medical students, nurses, and community organizers to raise awareness to understand how poverty, lack of education, housing and race translate into poor health in the community.

The Honorable Congressman Donald M. Payne, Chair House Sub-Committee on Africa and Global Health will deliver the keynote.

You are therefore invited, and also requested to send this invitation to your friends and associates to maximize attendance. We look forward to your kind consideration in the service of humanity and thank you for supporting the Foundation.
