The weather was hot but that did not stop the community from attending Jackson-Hinds community resource health fair. This was a fun-filled event with valuable health information, physical health demonstrations, numerous community resources, line dancing and more!
Special thanks to the Mississippi Department of Health, Safe Sleep, City of Jackson Fire and Police Department, Hinds County District Attorney candidate Jody Owens, Hinds County Justice candidate Brian C. Grizzell, Sno-Biz, Dickies Barbecue and other community leaders for attending this event.
