Recap: Weekend Outreach Events

On November 15th, AAHI attended the Shri Mangal Mandir Annual Health Fair. The event provided consultation from physicians and screenings on blood pressure, vision, hearing, bone density, nutrition, diabetes, skin diseases, and other health topics. Low-cost flu vaccines were also available for community members. AAHI's Resource Information Table offered bone density screenings, as well as information on general health and local resources.

The next day, we joined the Migrant Heritage Commission, in partnership with the Filipino American Ministry of St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church, for their Annual Health Fair. There were a variety of health services available including flu shots, glucose tests, and other health screenings. AAHI provided bone density screenings and information on local resources using the Wheel of Health Education.

A big thank you to Shri Mangal Mandir and the Migrant Heritage Commission for inviting us to your health fairs!
