(Miami-Dade, FL) – Commission Vice Chair Lynda Bell and Florida State Representative Frank Artiles teamed-up to host a Health & Job Fair at Miami-Dade College Kendall Campus this past Saturday, November 16, 2013. Over 700 job seekers attended this significant event in South Miami-Dade where they received vital information on current job openings offered by major companies such as Macy’s, AT&T, Jackson Health System, The Trump Organization, The U.S. Army, and Prudential Financial and Insurance to name a few.

Participants also benefitted from free health screenings from local healthcare organizations and institutions like the South Florida Chiropractic Center, Miami-Dade College Medical School, as well as the Florida Department of Health, among others. In addition, job seekers were also given the opportunity to participate in a free food distribution offered by the Farm Share organization.
