Recap: September Health Fairs

September marked the beginning of AAHI's outreach season and it was quite a busy month!

On September 14th, we attended the Guru Nanak Foundation of America Health Fair in Silver Spring, which featured an array of vendors and physicians providing health education and free vision, hearing, and dental exams. There were free flu shots available for community members as well. At AAHI's Resource Information Table, we provided bone density screenings and general health information on a variety of topics.

One week later, on September 21st, AAHI joined the Chinese Culture & Community Service Center for their Semi-Annual Health & Community Service Fair in Gaithersburg. There were health seminars, community service and health-related organizations, federal and local government agencies, as well as health screenings and consultations. Community members who visited AAHI's Resource Information Table had the opportunity to receive a bone density screening and spin our Wheel of Health Education.

On September 28th, the Washington Spencerville Korean SDA Church hosted their 5th Health & Welfare Expo in Silver Spring. A variety of free services were provided at the health fair including, but not limited to: health screenings, counseling services, a medical clinic, and healthy cooking lessons. AAHI provided general health information on cancer, hepatitis B, osteoporosis, local resources, diabetes, and patient-physician communication.
