For 37 years WJOU 90.1 FM, licensed to Oakwood University, has continued its mission to provide radio programming to the Huntsville community that is positive, family oriented, and life changing. A major part of that mission is our commitment to community service. Our Annual Community Health Fair is a result of that commitment.
For the past four years, Praise 90.1FM WJOU in partnership with Good Samaritan Hospice has sponsored this annual health and wellness event. Once again on Thursday, October 26 at our Fifth Annual Community Health Fair, we will provide free health screenings…from blood pressure to BMI, and we expect over 500 participants from the Huntsville and Oakwood communities. Proceeds from this community event will fund five $1,000 scholarships to benefit students at Oakwood University. The scholarships will be awarded during the health fair. To date, we have awarded over $10,000 in scholarships!
We will also present our 2017 Community Award to two individuals committed to health and wellness in the Huntsville community. Last year recipients were Cathy Miller, Community Impact Director
United Way of Madison County and Artis & Edna Sidney, co-owners of Garden Cove Produce.
Past award recipients include the Honorable Thomas “Tommy” Battle, Jr. Mayor of Huntsville, Donna Green-Goodman, health educator, author and television personality and Dr. Leslie Pollard, President of Oakwood University.
