Public Health Unit at Gateway Health Fair
Today marks the 4th Annual Gateway Youth Center Health Fair at the Constitution Park in Belize City where attendees can get free testing on everything from Diabetes to HIV. In addition to getting a better understanding of the services offered by the organizations taking part in the Fair. Those in attendance were: The Belize Cancer Society, Belize Council for the Visually Impaired(BCVI), Oceana, Ministry of Health, Belize Diabetes Association and of course our very own Public Health Unit. Students and teachers from the various highschools stopped by and gathered some flyers, asked questions and partook in the trivia games. The Belize City Council’s Public Health Unit’s Info desk was attended to by: Ms Tiffany Diaz – Sanitation Health Educator, Ms Lucy Avila Pitts – Sanitation Health Coordinator, Ms Josephine McCauley – Sanitation Health Educator and the Councillor with the responsibility of Public Heath, Councillor Deltrude Hylton. These ladies educated the public on the duties and responsibilities of their unit as well testing their knowledge of the Mayor & Councillors. All in all it was a notch on the Health Unit’s belt of creating an increasingly knowledgeable Belize City.
