Around the Community in June

Submitted by xlschwa on Thu, 07/14/2022 - 1:26 pm

Even on the hottest summer days, community health workers were outside. Equipped with sunglasses, water, and loads of sunscreen, they attended community celebrations, food distribution events, and farmers markets, bringing health conversations and resources to the people of Fairfax. 

Community health workers attended community celebrations for Juneteenth. They spoke to attendees about health topics, handed out flyers, and of course partook in some of the fun.
