RDI and Walgreens partnered this weekend at the FRERET MARKET across from High Hat Restaurant on Freret Street donating FREE FLU SHOTS to the community as a part of their BE WELL initiative for preventative health care. On the first Saturday of each month, Freret Market opens up for the community to share and enjoy the divine cuisine, arts, crafts and creativity that is so vibrant in our great city. Local vendors setup tents filled with creations that inspire. Additonally, there is live entertainment on the hour, a mobile vendor, Crepes a la Cart serving the most amazing savory and sweet crepes of your choice. La Cocinita Food Truck is parked nearby and inside the gates you will find soaps, crabcakes, handmade bags, the Junior League promoting their initiatives, herbal teas, beer, sno-balls, ice cream, jewelry, pottery, a fry bar serving French fries topped with whipped bleu cheese, fried garlic gloves and bacon.
Among these vendors, this opening Saturday, Sept. 6, RDI's PR, sales and marketing team came out along with Pharmacist and Immunization Specialist, Chanda Green of Walgreens and her team to provide FREE FLU SHOTS to the community in support of the RDI initiative to BE WELL. RDI encourages everyone in the community to be responsible for their individual HEALTH AND WELLNESS needs. Preventative healthcare is the direction of the healthcare future and we at RDI understand the harm bacteria and viruses cause within the community. Removing trash as quickly and efficiently as possible to reduce and eliminate bacteria growth is our business at RDI.
RDI wants to help the community BE WELL. Free flue shots were conveniently provided to Tulane, Loyola, Lusher and Newman students. Children of appropriate age, adults and the elderly gathered at the RDI/Walgreens tent to stand in line for their immunization needs. Here is a photo of the Freret Market team leader lounging around as we setup for the event. We love the Freret Market at RDI. Its a market that evokes the feeling of the original French Market. The next dates to attend the market are Nov. 1, Dec. 7, Jan. 3, Feb. 7, March 7, April 4 and May 9. We look forward to seeing you at the market this year. Come see what RDI will be providing to community next!
Thank you Shandra Green from Walgreens for all your help!
