Center of H.O.P.E. Community Health Fair by Mira Cabrera
Los Angeles, CA- For the first day of fall season Center of H.O.P.E (Haven of People Empowerment) kicked off their health fair for the community. It all started at nine o’clock in the morning on Saturday, September 21, the registration desk opened to welcome the people of the community. From children to adults to seniors, the health fair provided free benefits for everybody.
The health fair offered the participants with screenings for asthma/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), blood pressure, diabetes, dental, depression/dementia, electrocardiogram (ECG), hearing, and vision. While attendees took advantage of the multiple screenings available, they also had the benefit of receiving education about asthma/COPD, breast cancer, diabetes, heart health/obesity, and stress management.
A free flu shot was also administered to those who preferred to receive one.
St. Vincent Multicultural Health Awareness and Prevention Center offered body fat analysis and mammogram sign-ups while the Health Benefits Resource Center proposed health coverage information. Other booths such as The Rampart/ Village Neighborhood Council participated to inform the community regarding their responsibilities and services for the community.
After all the attendees completed their screenings and tests, a food distribution was also available for them. A bag of handful canned goods; fruits, etc were given out to each individual.
Center of H.O.P.E would like to thank the Rivera-Mitu Scholarship Foundation, the volunteers from Trinity Vocational Center, The Rampart Village Neighborhood Council, St. Vincent Multicultural Health Awareness and Prevention Center, West Los Angeles College- Dental Hygiene Program, Integrated Life, Pastor Benny and the volunteers from Lord of Harvest Church, and other major sponsors/exhibitors for supporting the Community Health Fair.
