Health Care Concert & Day of Awareness at the Campus of Washington High School
Atlanta, GA (February 19, 2013) – The largest outdoor community health outreach awareness festival and concert in the city of Atlanta continues to celebrate their 7th anniversary with an official health care festival, concert and day of awareness at Washington High School’s campus located at 45 White House Drive, SW, Atlanta, Georgia 30314. “We are excited to continue the practice of providing the citizens of Atlanta with valuable healthcare information that will ensure that they live better lives. This healthcare festival is near and dear to my heart due to me losing so many family members due to diabetes, cancer and severe hypertension. When my father died in 2005 because of complications from Diabetes, it really opened my eyes to how much our community doesn’t know about these every day critical illnesses that have the potential to take their lives.” said The B-AWARE Foundation’s Executive Director, Mr. Brian Glasper.
Beginning Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 12 pm to 8 pm, the family can enjoy fun-filled activities, food and music while receiving free health screenings and information. With attendance ranging from 3,000 to 8,000 over the last 5 years, the goal is to raise funds with the proceeds going towards The Diabetes Association of Atlanta & the B-AWARE Foundation. Children under 7 are free, pre-sale tickets are $3.00 and general admission is only $5.00 at the door. A portion of the proceeds will go to Washington High School’s Health, Science and Nutrition Department. Organizations taking part include: The United States Army, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Hands on Atlanta, the Atlanta Fire Department, the Atlanta Police Department, the Georgia Department of Transportation, the Fulton County Health Department,, V-103, Radio One, Wellcare, the ISHA Foundation (Diabetes Awareness) + many more!
