    (New Orleans) – The Dillard University Community Development Corporation will host one of the largest free health fairs that New Orleans has seen on Saturday, October 18, 2008 from 10 am to 3 pm on campus, 2601 Gentilly Boulevard in New Orleans. Medical experts will offer free medical screenings – valued at more than $1, 500 – to each attendee. Among the free screenings will be blood pressure, diabetes testing, eye exams, glucose and cholesterol.

    “This is exactly the reason that Dillard has created our Community Development Corporation,” said university president Marvalene Hughes. “We are part of the community and we want to use our unique resources to help rebuild the community. An important facet of that rebuilding is health services. We know that many in our region have not had a personal physician since Hurricane Katrina. This is a chance for every family to get the health screenings and consultation that we all need at no cost.”
