WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23: The seventh annual Argus Health Fair will take place on April 7 with the theme ‘I Love My Heart’.

There will be more than 35 booths at the fair representing health-related charities and organisations.

Health professionals will be on hand to answer questions and provide information to the public on a wide range of health topics, such as communicable diseases, oral health and maternal health.

Free health screenings will be available, including blood pressure, blood sugar, bone density and vision.

This year, the Bermuda Massage Therapy Association will also be offering free mini-massages.

Gerald Simons, President of the Argus Group, said: “Health insurance claims continue to rise year after year in Bermuda.

“The Argus Health Fair is designed to increase public understanding of health matters and raise awareness of the measures we can all take to improve our health.

“We chose heart health as the theme for the Argus booth as heart disease is the cause of nearly half the deaths in Bermuda each year, making it the island’s biggest killer.”

Health Minister Zane DeSilva said: “The Argus Health Fair is an important community event and we are proud to be partnering with the Argus Group and the Bermuda Hospitals Board again this year to make it happen.

“I urge residents of all ages to attend and learn about how to maintain their physical and psychological well-being and in turn, improve their quality of life.”

The fair will be held from 10:30am until 4pm on the 6th floor of the new Argus Building on Wesley Street, Hamilton.
