THE BRONX - Bronx residents headed to St. James Park Friday for a free health fair.

The fair, #Not62, was aimed to combat a new statistic that states the Bronx is the least healthiest county in New York state. The county is ranked 62/62. 

The goal of the fair was to bring together major organizations to help improve the health outcomes of Bronx residents and have the county move up in health rankings within the next three to five years. 

The #Not62 health fair began at 1 p.m. and continued until 6 p.m.
