FORT LAUDERDALE/DAVIE, Fla. – Nova Southeastern University (NSU) will once again welcome families to its annual “A Day for Children” free health fair, Sunday, Oct. 21 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Children ages 15 years and younger (including infants and toddlers), along with their families, are invited to attend this year’s event on NSU’s campus, 3301 College Ave., Davie. The annual event is a day filled with fun while focusing on the issue of health. Those attending will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from NSU’s Health Care Centers who will be providing free assessments for hearing and balance, vision, speech-language, dental health, nutrition tips, and more. NSU health care providers, organizations, and companies from across Broward County, including Children’s Services Council, Hungry Howie’s, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Florida KidCare, Florida Blue, Young at Art Museum, Broward 211, Broward Hospital, Baptist Health and Feeding South Florida are just a few of the many organizations that will be on-hand at the event. While the day is meant to be a fun time for children and families, there is a more serious reason for the annual gathering. “This annual event helps children and families in South Florida obtain critical access to quality health-care services, in a fun and friendly environment” said Robert Oller, D.O., chief medical advisor at NSU’s Division of Clinical Operations. Another feature of the event is having the Broward Sheriff’s Office and Davie Police will be providing free fingerprinting and ID cards. NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library will be on-hand to provide library cards to children and their parents. Having a library card is essential to a child’s learning and can provide them with many educational resources. . The health fair and all services and food are FREE and open to the public. No registration is necessary. For more information, call 954-NSU-CARE (954-678-2273) or 954-288-2268.
