Back to all News

Our health is our most valuable asset, and SYSA and EPSAP are joining
to encourage dialogue and raise awareness about health concerns in our communities.
“Awareness for the Soul Health Fair and Survivor Walk” promotes the importance of
health and wellness and encourage preventative care.

As part of the week-long Soul Bowl 2023 celebration, the Health Fair and Walk will be
from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2023, at the Theophalis May Resource
Center at Legion Field, 1301 W. Gregory St. Pensacola Florida.

Free blood pressure checks, diabetes screenings and other health-related activities will
be provided by Community Health Northwest Florida. Information on women’s health,
behavioral health, and dental health also will be available.

The event will feature a survivor walk, a tribute to those who have fought against and
overcome health challenges. The event will serve as a reminder of the resilience of
survivors, honor those who have triumphed over health adversities and remember
those who have gone before us.

“We believe that by coming together as a community during the Soul Bowl 2023 Week
Celebration, we can bring attention to health issues that often go unnoticed,” said ,
representative of SYSA. “Our goal is to encourage everyone to take proactive steps
towards maintaining their well-being and to raise awareness about the importance of
early detection and prevention.”

“We are thrilled to partner with SYSA to organize this significant event as part of the
Soul Bowl 2023 Week Celebration,” said Deathera Forbes, representative of EPSAP.
“By offering free health screenings and fostering an environment of support and
education, we hope to empower people to make informed decisions about their health
and inspire positive changes within our community.”

The Awareness for the Soul Health Fair and Survivor Walk is free and open to all ages,
healthcare professionals, and people who are passionate about making a difference in
the health and well-being of others. Together, we can create a culture that values and
prioritizes health.
