Posted by DallasBlackBlog on Friday, August 10, 2007

Representative Yvonne Davis would like to invite constituents of District 111 to participate in the District 111 Community Forum & Health Fair on Saturday, August 18, 2007. This event will provide constituents the opportunity to gather at one location and register for services offered by various State agencies, participate in health screenings and also speak with representatives from utility companies regarding provider services. The Community Forum & Health Fair will be held at Concord Missionary Baptist Church in the Fellowship Hall, 6808 Pastor Bailey Drive, Dallas, Texas 75237 from 9:00AM to 2:00PM.

Representative Davis has invited a number of State agencies including the Texas Office of the Attorney General, Texas Health & Human Services Commission, Texas Department of Insurance-Division of Worker’s Compensation, Texas Department of Aging & Disability Services, WorkSource for Dallas County, Texas Workforce Commission and the Child Care Group, to answer questions and to sign eligible constituents up for state programs. In addition to the state agencies, Representative Davis has invited a number of utility companies including AT&T, TXU and ATMOS Energy, to participate in the Community Forum to answer any specific questions or concerns constituents may have regarding their accounts. This year’s event will coincide with the state of Texas’ Annual Sales Tax Holiday which is effective August 17-19, 2007. Representative Davis will provide the first 200 school age children with backpacks to assist with their back to school efforts.

Health screenings such as blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, diabetes, mammograms, sickle cell, prostate (must be 38 years or older) and Hepatitis C will be available for constituents.
