T. Leroy Jefferson Medical Society (TLJMS) will kick off National Health Center Week Celebration by hosting its 16th Annual Community Health Fair on Saturday, August 6, 2016 at 9:00am (Registration begins at 7:30 am). The event will take place at FoundCare€™s Health Center (located at 2330 S Congress Ave, West Palm Beach, FL 33406) and will have guest speakers, a host of medical offerings such as immunizations, screenings, complimentary back-to-school physicals, family-fun activities and more.

TLJMS will once again partner with the Center for Autism & Related Disabilities (CARD) at Florida Atlantic University to provide autism screenings, and Komen South Florida to provide breast health education.

Additional services will include dental screenings, pap smears, breast exams, and testing for vision, diabetes, blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and HIV.
