The Association of Filipino Pastors will be holding its first Medical+Fitness Outreach this Saturday, Aug. 31, at the Saipan Community Church.
The free health screening, which will be held from 6am to 11am at the Susupe church, will include blood pressure checkup (6am-9am), blood sugar check (6am-9am), body mass index (6am-9am), and dental consultation (6am-9am).
The dental consultation will be limited to diagnosing a dental problem and will not include treatment.
Aside from the health checkups, the Medical+Fitness Outreach will also have Zumba activities, an information talk on health and nutrition, and a prayer ministry.
The association is made up of 11 churches on Saipan: Saipan Community Church, Victorious Christian Church, Cornerstone Christian Church, Jesus Is Lord Church, Marianas Bible Fellowship Church, Christian Bible Fellowship Church, Marianas Christian Church, Upper Room International Ministries, Life In The Son Fellowship, Mission Connection Ministry, and Filipino Community Church.
Victorious Christian Church pastor Brandon Perez said those conducting the health screening itself are actual heath providers who are members of the 11 churches under the Association of Filipino Pastors umbrella.
The health checkups are free and available until supplies last.
