Preparations are in full swing for the 4th Bradford Health Mela to be held on Saturday 25th September 2016. This year’s event will be held from 11 AM – 3 PM at the University of Bradford Student Central, Richmond Road, Bradford BD7 1DP.

Speaking about the event, local organiser Professor Kailash Mohanty said “This is a unique event that helps engage the community and empower it to lead healthy lifestyle. It will provide opportunity for the visitors to communicate with several local and national healthcare providers. They can also avail of the free health checks, confidential 1:1 lifestyle advice from health professionals and health counselling. They will also be able to attend a taster session in Reiki. I hope it will help public to make effective and informed use of healthcare resources.”
