West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce (WHCC) and Capitol Drugs / Power Zone will hold the 19th Annual Health Fair & Sample Saturday on Santa Monica Boulevard on Saturday, March 25th, 2017 from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
Over a hundred health and fitness vendors, local businesses and community organizations will have booths throughout the sidewalk alongside Santa Monica Boulevard between Westbourne Drive and North West Knoll Drive. Participating companies and organizations will be sampling products, offering giveaways and information about their businesses. Services include Health Screenings by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, information on preventative care, HIV and AIDS, PrEP, treatment programs for drug and alcohol abuse, skin care and more. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is an important sponsor of the event and brings a sizable staff including several nurses to provide free services to the community. Other sponsors include AIDS Project Los Angeles, Los Angeles LGBT Center, Klean Treatment Centers, Being Alive and #Boom and #Sizzle.
The event is free to the public and is expected to attract more than a thousand attendees. “West Hollywood is a trendsetter and at the cutting edge of many industries, so health and fitness are no exception”, said Genevieve Morrill, President and CEO of the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. She added, “We’ve made an effort to include a wide variety of health and fitness related businesses in order to appeal to people of all ages and their specific interests”.
This is a big year for the Chamber’s collaborator, Capitol Drugs, as they celebrate their 30th anniversary. “In addition to our longtime partners, we’ve invited several new businesses and organizations that add value to the fair such as the Black AIDS Institute, which will bring a free instant HIV testing unit”, said Raja Sannidhi, owner of Capitol Drugs/Power Zone. Appropriately, the pharmaceutical giant, Gilead, will have representatives educating the public about Truvada (PrEP).
