The free community health fair hosted by the UAB Selma Family Medicine at the YMCA of Selma-Dallas County on Saturday is one of the events in Selma that provides a great service to the community.

The YMCA was filled with a huge variety of interactive booths and vendors, giving attendees ample opportunities to learn about health and fitness.

Dr. Matthew Bauman of UAB Selma Family Medicine said it best that the goal ultimately is to get people active and get people together.

Having an active lifestyle is so important.

One important part to a healthy lifestyle is education. Education like that was provided at this health fair.

It is no secret that the country faces an epidemic of unhealthiness.

It is important to pursue an active and healthy lifestyle and these fairs are just one way to begin doing that.

We hope more come around to help people stay knowledgeable about their health.
