The Dallas County Medical Society Alliance, in conjunction with the Church of the Incarnation, hosts a health fair next weekend targeting East Dallas residents in advance of the 2011-12 school year.

The church serves as the location Aug. 13 from 9 a.m.-noon. The event is free to the public and is an easy way to bring children’s shots up to date. Immunizations will be provided by the Dallas County Health Department.

The clinic will feature the free immunizations, a bicycle safety course, an “Ask the Doctor” booth, a zumba dance demonstration, an “Ask the Attorney” booth, and health screenings, including mammogram appointments, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation will hand out information on type 1 and type 2 diabetes, free screenings will be performed.

The Dallas County Medical Society Project Access will provide free sports physicals for students.

A bicycle helmet and bicycle giveaway will also take place with a limited number of donations. The Dallas police Central Patrol Neighborhood Patrol Office also will sponsor a bicycle safety course. There will be a limited number of bicycles and helmets given away.

New and used bicycles in good condition are needed for the giveaway. Cash donations will be used to purchase school supplies, school uniforms, and bus passes for students who participate in after school sports activities and need transportation home. Donations are tax deductible and donors will receive receipts.

Donations can be made to either Church of the Incarnation — checks should be made out to Church of the Incarnation with a notation in the memo line that reads “Health Fair” — or to the Dallas County Medical Society Alliance Foundation, Health Fair, 5500 Swiss Ave., Dallas, 75214.
