Free yoga, health screenings and a block party will be available to city residents later this month as Baltimore health officials promote healthy lifestyles.
The events are part of the second annual Healthy City Days - a week of free events designed to get Baltimore residents to exercise more, eat better and take control of their health.
Health officials announced the weeklong event, that runs Sept. 30 to October 7, at a press conference today with Ravens fullback Vonta Leach.
Officials acknowledge that the events won't solve all the health problems in a city with high rates of heart disease, infant mortality and colon cancer - just to name a few. But they hope to give residents the tools to begin living healthier lives.
