Black Communities Health and Wellbeing Day in Lambeth
If you are into health, food, music and community do not miss the chance to join the 'Black Communities Health & Wellbeing Day' event!
Where and when:
10am to 3pm on 16 October at St. Mark's Church, Kennington Park Rd, London SE11 4PP
About the event:
As life is returning to normal after a challenging 15 months it’s time to reconnect and make sure we’re looking after our long-term health – the things that have always been important to keep an eye on, like blood pressure, staying active and checking for lumps and bumps.
We know food and music is the secret to a happy body and soul, so we’ll have FREE food and DJ Rita Ray playing global sounds from black talent old and new. Rita is an international DJ with roots in Lambeth – you might know her from her days co-running and DJing at the Mambo Inn in Brixton.
Your wonderful local NHS teams will be on hand from 10am to 3pm to offer advice on everything from keeping well to blood pressure and diabetes checks, healthy eating and how to spot the early signs of breast and prostate cancer.
There will also be opportunities to participate in some exciting activities throughout the day, such as dance sessions. Plus, got an idea you want to share to improve health in your community? The local NHS and Public Health team will be on board Lambeth’s Health and Wellbeing bus to welcome feedback and ideas.
