The 10 a.m.-to-2 p.m. fair will offer free health screenings and resources to improve physical health and well-being. This year, Watson, who represents Super District 7, said health, wellness and unemployment and under-employment are critical issues that impact quality of life.
“Providing a forum where information, resources and services are made available to my constituents is necessary and important,” he said.
DeKalb County’s Workforce Development and Police Department, the Georgia Department of Labor, the Department of Driver Services, and Walmart are among companies and agencies that have committed to participate.
Information about jobs posted on job data sites will be provided by Career Builders and Opportunity Knocks, an employment resource for those who seek careers in nonprofit organizations. The Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency, a nonprofit whose programs serve recovering addicts and those with complicated criminal backgrounds, also will provide information about job readiness and placement assistance services.
The event is free and open to the public and no registration is required.
