Back Bay Mission in Biloxi is making sure everyone is healthy as they head into next year.
The mission held its ‘Be Healthy in 2020’ Health Fair for members of the community Saturday. Wellness classes, blood pressure, and glucose checks as well as free flu shots were a part of the fair, along with information about healthy living.
Back Bay Mission Community Health Worker Mary Tell says collaboration with other local health organizations is important. “We have to promote within our community and work closely with our community. Health vendors, just every organization, we partner with them.”
Walgreens and the Magnolia Medical Foundation were just some of the organizations that participated in the fair.
