A crowd of people of all ages turned out for a free health fair organized by South Atlanta Heart and Vascular Center.

The health fair was held Saturday at Avery Park. Along with the free healthcare screenings, there were food and prizes – and the Joe Yeoman Band provided live music.

The free screenings included: cardiac ultrasound, carotid ultrasound, blood pressure check, body mass index, blood sugar check and electrocardiograms.

The free health screenings and information at Saturday’s health fair were provided by a variety of local healthcare professionals from: South Atlanta Heart and Vascular Center, Newnan Dentistry, Newnan Dermatology, Affinis Hospice, Atlas Nutrition and Wellness Center, Atlas Integrative Medicine and Spine Center and Coweta Hearing Clinic.

South Atlanta Heart and Vascular Center is a newly opened cardiology and vascular center and is holding the free fair to get to better know the local community.

Doctors Angampally G. Rajeev and Vishwas S. Kadam bring years of experience and education in the cardiovascular field while Dr. Kadam is also a physician nutrition specialist working with patients to have a heart healthy diet and weight. Both Rajeev and Kadam live in Newnan.

“Today has been a great success,” said Kadam. “We have seen an excellent turnout for the event and we are happy to provide this service for our community.”
