What is going to be done at this event will prove invaluable to the many, who will make use of it. All the effort, time and contribution put into this for the benefit of the community do demonstrate to the fact that people of God still cares.”

“A large number of individuals are suffering from chronic diseases, many of which can be prevented if only the right measures are taken at an early stage,” stated Clayton Todd, Presidentof Dinthill Alumni Association of Florida. “By offering the community this opportunity to receive several life saving tests free of cost, and gather information vital to leading a healthy lifestyle, the Dinthill Alumni Association of Florida anticipate making a positive impact on the lives of individuals who attend the health and wellness fair. We also hope that the event will assist in promoting healthcare awareness among our members and the general public.”
