Stillman College’s Free Health Fair Honoring Fallen Student
Stillman College is set to host the Denzel Davis Memorial Health Fair on March 29. The event will offer a number of free health screenings, including blood pressure and blood glucose, as well as tests for sickle cell and HIV/AIDS.
The Denzel Davis Memorial Health Fair is sponsored by Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Alabama and will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Stillman quad. Representatives from local agencies will provide information on mental health care services and intimate partner and domestic violence.
The health fair, which honors Denzel Davis, a former Stillman student who passed away on Oct. 28, 2018, after contracting viral bronchitis, lifts barriers of cost and location for both students and West End residents. The health fair was held first in 2019 but has been on hiatus due to COVID-19.
Five Horizons Health Services will do saliva swabs to test for HIV/AIDS, as well as other STDs, as the health fair. Condoms will also be distributed.
Other agencies participating include:
- Alabama Department of Public Health
- Dr. Pam Foster
- Balm in Gilead
- Turning Point
- Safe Center
- Sickle Cell Disease Association of West Alabama
- Manderson Cancer Center
- Maude Whatley Health Services
- Denise Dolling, Montgomery Hospitals
- All of Us
- Veteran’s Administration
- Perception Counseling Services
- Angernetta Snoddy, dental hygienist
- Melanie Brunner, Represent Wellness
Stillman alumna Dr. Keisha Lowther, a primary care doctor in Tuscaloosa and chief medical officer of Whatley Health Services, will deliver the keynote address at the Denzel Davis Memorial Health Fair.
