MANVEL: The fourth annual ‘Life and Soul’ free health fair will be held on Nov 15 from 8 am to 1 pm at New Life Plaza (Sai Primary Care), 3945 CR 58, Manvel, TX. Organized by nonprofit community-based charity organizations Love to Share Foundation America (LTSFA) and Global organization for Divinity (G.O.D.), it is open to all with no prior registrations. Mayor Delores Martin of Manvel and Mayor Tom Reid of Pearland will kick-off the event at 8 am.

Given the rapid growth in community and its relative lack of resources, projects like Life and Soul with its free screenings, education, immunization and safety campaigns are indispensable in supporting mainstream medicine in the community.

Screenings for this year at the fair include BMI, BP, Glucose, Cholesterol, Lung Function, Pulse Oximetry, EKG, Bone Density and Vision. 8-10 hours fasting is required for labs. Physicians will provide free consultations.

Free flu and pneumonia shots will be made available to eligible candidates, thanks to TMA’s Be Wise – Immunize program. Free helmets will be given to children and adults to prevent head injury.

Sponsors include Frost Bank, TMA, HEB Plus, Gale Pharmacy, Walgreens, Sanofi Aventis, ACC, Texas Eye Institute, Pearland Best Coupons, Pearland MRI, Proactive Physical Therapy and Bay Area Printing. Over 50 volunteers, including physicians, nurses, medical students, high school students and others work selflessly to make this event a possibility.

Volunteers at LTSFA and G.O.D work at grass roots levels to lend a helping hand to the under privileged, to empower individuals with  accessible healthcare, education, leadership skills, and clean environment thus enhancing the quality of life and paving way for sustainable communities.

On Nov 13, 12-1 pm, LTSFA will present a session focusing on ‘inner’ health by its lead speaker Mr. M. K. Ramanujam – “Benefits of Mindfulness for Busy Professionals” – at University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center. This session is open to all. To register call 281-402-6585.

G.O.D aims to promote peace, harmony and universal love amid cultural diversity. It is involved in several spiritual, cultural and social activities in the Houston area as well as in several cities in the USA and other countries.

Among G.O.D.’s upcoming programs in Houston are Bhoomi pooja and Mahamantra Mass Prayer at Namadwaar Prayer House on Nov 8, and a grand 7-day Madhura Utsav and Srimad Bhagavata Saptaham from Dec 20-27.
