GREENBELT MD, May 23, 2022- CCI Health Services will host its second annual Block Party on Saturday, June 11, from 12 PM to 3 PM at their Greenbelt health center, located at 9220 Springhill Lane.
The event encourages youth to take their health care seriously, introduces them to new opportunities in their community, and features CCI’s services, including free resources such as birth control and STI testing.
Last year’s event saw CCI provide HIV screenings and COVID vaccines to attendees. Local organizations also participated, including Collegebound and Prince George’s Community College, promoting post-secondary education options. In addition, Mission BBQ fed more than five hundred people.
“We are excited to be throwing the Block Party for the second year in a row. Last year was a major success, and we plan for it to be even better this year. This event truly represents what CCI is all about, serving our community and ensuring that everyone has access to health care,” said Darnielle Williams, CCI’s Family Planning Program Manager.
This year’s Block Party will be hosted by KyleontheMic, a local media personality known for being the hype man for local basketball teams Capital City GO-GO and Washington Mystics. The event will also feature a special dance performance from the Greenbelt Dance Studio.
