DALLAS (July 29, 2023) – Foremost Family Health Centers partnered with American Cancer Society, Friendship West Baptist Church, Dallas County and other community organizations to host a major back-to-school and health fair event in Dallas County. More than 500 attendees received a collection of essential back-to-school supplies while getting the opportunity for a range of health care checks. Additionally, there were providers on-hand to discuss diabetes, hypertension, dental care, vaccines and behavioral health matters.

“The anticipated number of new diagnoses of cancer among Texans will approach 150,000 for the year 2023. Our mission is to end cancer as we know it. We’ve made that clear— but ending cancer begins with prevention and education. We were pleased to support Foremost in making this event a reality. And, we are planning to do more,” said Lakeye Hurd, Associate Director of Community Partnerships, American Cancer Society.
