TCC South Campus to Host 2016 African American Health Expo

Community invited to learn about resources designed to help improve overall wellness

Tarrant County College South Campus will host the 16th annual African American Health Expo (AAHExpo) for students, staff and community members. The AAHExpo is an annual event that brings together various organizations and communities in and around Fort Worth to address the need for education, early detection, prevention, treatment and access to community resources.


Several deadly diseases – diabetes, asthma, stoke and lung cancer – strike black Americans harder and more often than most other ethnic groups, which is why TCC South is hosting this event as a community service. Thousands or people, from diverse backgrounds, have attended this annual event as a way of improving their  overall wellness.


By highlighting the many community-based service providers, exhibitors, and demonstrations, TCC will showcase some of the community’s best and brightest while providing strategies for healthy lifestyle change for all ages. There will be cooking demonstrations, free health screenings, and workshops on job readiness, financial management and literacy, health and education.
