BFLA hosts health fair

Sharmane Garcia

If you haven’t done any of your health checks for the New Year, Saturday may be a good time to start.  The Belize Family Life Association is hosting its first health fair for 2017 off Albert Street on Church and Bishop Streets. There will be health information, routine testing and even games. We spoke with Marketing Officer Sharmane Garcia and she tells us why you should stop in at the health fair:


Sharmane Garcia, Marketing Officer, BFLA

“We have Kidney Association who is going to be out there doing Kidney Function tests. We have the Cancer Society that will be giving away certificates for pap smears to females and we will be out there – BFLA/NHI. We will be doing HIV testing, Sugar, Blood Pressure, and then you move on to the Kidney Function Test. We have some games set up for the children. In the mobile, we have an RV – we are very proud of our mobile – so inside we will be catering to young people between the ages of four to nineteen. A doctor will be in there and they will do general checkup. We will have Doctor Byron Donaire and he will be doing just some dental assessments.”



“So, it is an event for anybody of all ages?”


Sharmane Garcia

“All ages. We welcome everybody to come out. While you are out doing your shopping, stop in and do your test and move on. We welcome everybody because there will be information and we will have our KISS Booth – the Keeping It Safe and Sexy. They talk about sexual and reproductive health and they will be doing some games. So, it is gonna be a day of health care, but it is going to be a fun day. We are going to try and make it as fun as possible.”
