In honor of Minority Health Month, the African American Health Program will sponsor its fourth annual community day on April 15 at the East County Community Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Attendees will have access to free health screening, education on disease prevention and fitness demonstrations for all ages, according to a news release.

Chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and issues such as infant mortality deaths disproportionately affect the African American community compared to other races and ethnicities.
