Health Fair Success!

The BTDA and Whittier St. Health Center held our annual “Driving for Wellness” health fair at the Logan Airport Taxi Pool on November 6. It was a smashing success. Sorel Bertrand , the Men’s Health Coordinator at Whittier St. Health Center said, “It was a beautiful day, the sun was out, and everybody was happy. More than 100 men received health information; 83 men filled out the health screenings sheet; 80 men did blood pressure screening, and 58 men did glucose screening.”

The BTDA Organizing Committee partnered with Whittier St. Health Center to organize the health fair. This was the fourth health fair with Whittier St. Health Center since 2009. Massport has been a consistent supporter of the health fairs and this year provided space and a bus for health screenings. We look forward to future “Driving for Wellness” events in 2014. Thank you to our friends at Whittier St. Health Center of Roxbury for another great event!
