HEART Team at Health Fair


Coushatta’s Community Health Fair is coming April 26th presented by the Red River Council on Aging. This spring the MLK Health Center and Pharmacy is joining the council to provide valuable health information to the community.

The MLK Health Center’s HEART Team or Health Education Awareness Response Team will provide B.M.I. or Body Mass Index tests. The BMI is a simple test to determine if a person is underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese based on their height/weight ratio.

One of the major health problems facing many residents of Red River Parish is obesity. The HEART Team will have their registered dietitian at the health fair to provide educational counseling on obesity.

The HEART Program is here to help you get healthy and stay healthy. Join the HEART Team at the Community Health Fair April 26th. The hours are 8:30 am to noon. The health fair will be held at the Council On Aging at 1824 Front Street. The HEART Team reminds you “together we can build healthier communities.”

Mark your calendar for Thursday April 26th. The Community Health Fair will be held from 8:30 am until noon.
