Join us at the Block Party for Life this Saturday!
Keeping you and your family healthy is what we care most about, and that’s why we are celebrating your health with a day of music, BBQ, fish fry, health screenings and more at the “Block Party for Life” in the1800 block of Newton Street in Algiers this Saturday July 8th from 10AM – 2PM!
We will be offering free hepatitis C, HIV and blood pressure screenings, and our We PrEP Together initiative will be there to talk to you and your loved ones about how we can work together to keep the community HIV free with PrEP. A big thanks to our partners NOMTOC, Craige Cultural Center, Becnel’s Automotive Repair and Algiers Charter School Association for making this possible. The event is free and open to the public, and is family-friendly. Hope to see you there!
