Medifast sponsors HBCU Run Walk Health Wellness Fair


Medifast is committed to our mission of supporting healthier communities through our Community Impact Program. We believe the obesity epidemic, which contributes to countless preventable diseases, can be addressed through intervention and prevention. As a proud supporter of the Washington, DC Metro Historically Black Colleges and Universities Alumni Alliance, our goal is to help our community begin the journey to Optimal Health by making healthier choices each day.

To increase awareness and education about prevention of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer, the HBCU embarks on its annual Run Walk Health and Wellness Fair. This community health initiative and fundraiser aspires to educate on living well, with regular exercise and proper diet and draw attention to the barriers that many people in our communities face in making healthy choices. Proceeds support students who are interested in attending an HBCU in Health/Sciences fields of study.
