This Saturday, Nov. 1st, is the 3rd annual Take a Loved One to the Doctor event, held at the Durham County Human Services Building (414 East Main St.) from 10am – 2pm. This year, the family event also serves as a chance to recognize and celebrate the RWJF Culture of Health Prize with Durham County residents and officials.
Durham County is one of six national winners of the 2014 RWJF Culture of Health Prize. The prize honors communities that are working toward building healthier communities through innovative and exciting initiatives. Durham County will receive a cash prize of $25,000 in recognition of its commitment to building a Culture of Health. Saturday’s short ceremony will include comments from local officials, the Durham County award video and a performance by Durham entertainers.
Take a Loved One to the Doctor offers residents an opportunity to take control of their health and find out more about community resources. Wool E. Bull and K97.5 DJ Brian Dawson will make special guest appearances, and DATA is providing free transportation to the event. Spread the word and bring your loved ones for the celebration, health screenings, food and exercise demonstrations, free food giveaway, kids bike raffle, family activities and more!
