Viola Davis teams up with Vaseline Healing Project on community health fair


ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. -- The Vaseline Healing Project is working to close the skin health treatment gap for Americans by providing dermatological care and training to those with limited access to quality care.

To further the Vaseline brand's commitment to making skin health treatment more accessible in the U.S., The Vaseline Healing Project traveled with award-winning actress and project advocate, Viola Davis, to her hometown of Central Falls, Rhode Island to host a one-day community health fair on Oct. 8. 

"Dry skin may seem like just an inconvenience, but I've seen how minor skin issues can become a more serious health concern when left untreated," said Davis. "I want to use my platform to give my community a voice, which is why I am happy to be working with The Vaseline Healing Project to give back to my hometown and so many other areas in need across the U.S."

Five local dermatologists and health clinicians, including Vaseline Healing Project advisory board member and board certified dermatologist Dr. Grace Bandow, treated hundreds of Central Falls residents during the one-day health clinic presented by The Vaseline Healing Project. Residents were provided access to skin screenings and skin checks in addition to medical counsel and other medical services such as dental care, flu shots and screenings for blood pressure and glucose levels. The free community event also featured food, live entertainment and special exhibits from local businesses.
