About 1000 people attended the American Diabetes Association’s Feria de Salud, a Hispanic health and wellness festival at Kidd Springs Park in Oak Cliff on Sept. 22, 2012. Hundreds were screened for glucose, blood pressure, cholesterol, and more, thanks to Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital, Walgreens and several other clinics. There was also a food demonstration and nutrition class as well as a myriad of vendors located outside in the park. People enjoyed the entertainment as well.
The Feria de Salud was presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, Colgate Total, Covance, South Texas Dental, City of Dallas, Univision Radio and Television, United Health Care, and Walgreens.
