“Wholeness and health has been an emphasis at Fort Lauderdale Church since the 1920s when it began on Andrews Avenue,” said Sergeant Alphonso Bonaby of the Broward Sheriff’s Office in his congratulatory remarks. Bonaby officially opened the 16th annual Healthy Lifestyle—Longer Life health event sponsored by Fort Lauderdale Church in partnership with Stranahan High School and held on the school’s campus.

Most of this year’s attendees took advantage of available free medical screenings. More than 40 providers displayed booths at the fair.

Pauline Douglas, R.N., coordinated the program with Derk Green, Everard Roofe, and a group of volunteers. “Nurse Douglas and her team must be commended for their herculean effort,” said Jeffrey Thompson, Fort Lauderdale pastor.

Jennifer Hamilton, Stranahan High School Athletic Director, was recognized for the pivotal role she played in making the health fair a reality. The fair was co-sponsored by Broward Health, Broward Health County Health Department, and several area businesses.
