The health fair will also feature panel discussions that focus on incorporating spiritual wellness into daily lives, building resilient families, mental health, the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on communities and medical professionals, and a discussion by youth on issues such as the pandemic and isolation.

A free Gospel Explosion concert will be held starting at 3 p.m. Sunday featuring Lamar Campbell & SOP, Thomas & The Situation, and others. Doors open at 2 p.m.

“The health fair is about creating access to resources to improve your health and wellbeing, but it is also about celebrating our communities,” said Antoniette Holt, director of the Office of Minority Health at the Indiana Department of Health. “We are grateful to all of our partners and volunteers who are making this event possible and hope that Hoosiers will come spend the day and enjoy all that the health fair offers.”
