Smith Center for Community Advancement: Health Fair


My name is Andre C Russell, and I am the Founder and CEO of the Smith Center for Community Advancement a new nonprofit organization dedicated to providing innovative supportive family services and community service. Earlier in February 2014 I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. This was both an emotional and physical shock to the system as everything that I knew as a lifestyle will be forever altered. Even if this change was for the better the experience will be something that I will never forget and I am forever grateful to my friends and family who supported me through my recovery and my healthier lifestyle choices.

Because of this, I decided to have our first community service event for the year a Health Fair for the community in the hopes of raising awareness and the importance to have screenings, be active, and to take care of one another, The Smith Center Family Health Fair. This health fair will be Saturday, April 19, 2014 at Calvary Baptist Church located at 8247 S Jeffery Blvd from 1-5pm.  This health fair will focus on:

• Nutrition in the home and while traveling


• Mental Health Awareness

• Fitness Demonstrations

• Healthcare Resources

• Insurance

We will feature vendors, health-testing kiosks and keynote speakers who will share special testimonies. The entire event will be done in a very comfortable manner to encourage and show families that we are all continually on a journey of health and they are truly not alone.

As a leader and contributor to this community, I am respectively inviting you to please come out and attend this event. We plan on hosting a great program and I would to show you what the Smith Center for Community Advancement can do for our community.

If interested in supporting please contact myself at

Thank you in advance for your support.
