ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, August 6, 2014 – GIS: Barry University, a Miami based institution, partnered with Minister of Health and Social Security, Hon. Clarice Modeste Curwen, to host the 4th Health Fair for the year, at Munich in St. Andrew’s, on July 19.

The Fair was held at Tulerries Presbyterian Church where many of the villagers were able to participate in the activities and services offered, such as testing of blood sugar, pressure and weight.

Parliamentary Representative for St. Andrew South West, Hon. Yolande Bain Horsford, expressed her gratitude and stated how pleased she was to have such an event held for the people of Munich.-

The work of the team from Barry University did not end with the Health Fair, however. On Sunday, July 27, University dignitaries, along with Minister Modeste, graduated 11 persons from a three-week course on Breast Health at the Bonair Government School.

The Breast Health Project is estimated to last for 6 months, during which time house-to-house visits will be done to assess and educate the village of Coast Guard, St. Mark’s, about breast health. Scrubs were given to each graduate to aid in the project.

Minister Modeste was extremely pleased with the outcome of the Project, although still in it's initial state. The Health Minister stated how proud she was of the graduates.

Several of the Breast Health graduates expressed their deepest gratitude to the Parliamentary Representative for the opportunity to be part of the Project and for acknowledging and supporting a program of such importance in the constituency of St. Mark's. Special thanks were also given to the team from Barry University.
