Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, Suffolk Health Commissioner James Tomarken, MD, MPH and Suffolk Community College announce Suffolk County’s Fifth Gospel Health Fest. The event will showcase the county’s finest Gospel choirs, dance ministries and choral groups, while providing health information and inspiring presentations in recognition of Minority Health Month.
“This event promises to be rich in culture while providing the community with health care information from leaders they trust and understand their culture and concerns,” said Executive Bellone.
“The mission of the Department of Health Services’ Office of Minority Health is to improve health outcomes by eliminating the six major health disparities identified by the Centers for Disease Control: (CDC) Cancer, Diabetes, Immunizations, Infant Mortality, Heart Disease/Stroke, and HIV/AIDS,” said Dr. James Tomarken. Events such as this give us the opportunity to serve the minority community in Suffolk County.”
