This past Saturday hundreds gathered for the “Healthy Lifestyles, Healthy Communities 2011 Event” held at the Lemann Center in Donaldsonville.

The Henry Schein, Capitol City Family Health Center, City of Donaldsonville, and Louisiana Primary Care Association sponsored this event.

Residents were able to enjoy free health screenings for all ages, as well as, free food and games for kids.

Booths were set up for dental, vision, diabetes, asthma, hypertension, behavioral health, obesity, and chiropractic services.

Baton Rouge’s Max 94.1 Radio Station reported live for the event.

“We just want to thank everyone who came out and supported this event,” said Rhonda Litt, CEO of the Capitol City Family Health Center.
