FamiliesEmpowered to host free education and health expo
The 2012 education and health expo, billed as the one-stop shop for all things education and health, will take place from noon-4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
The expo will provide Houston area families with the resources they need to help their child get on the path to college, according to a press release.
"The Education and Health Expo gives FamiliesEmpowered the unique opportunity to meet with thousands of parents and help them to become their child's first and best advocate for their education," said Matthew Barnes, executive director of FamiliesEmpowered in a press release. "We are fortunate enough to be able to bring so many diverse schools to one venue where educators can share with families one on one. And, so families can stay healthy and focused on the path ahead, this years Expo will also offer a series of health screenings for attending families."
In addition to various breakout sessions, health vendors will provide screenings ranging from dental exams to blood pressure readings and glucose tests. Health vendors will also be providing free immunizations for children and flu shots for the entire family, according to a press release.
"We understand the important role health plays in education," said Dr. Bob Sanborn, president & CEO of Children At Risk, in a press release. "The education and health expo provides a unique venue for us to engage with families who need to maintain their health but do not always have the resources to do so. Our goal is to keep families healthy so they can focus on school."
