Cuộc Hội Họp – Events: Save the Date! BPSOS-New Orleans to Host Health Fair on Sept. 21

August 20, 2008: Mark your calendar! On Sunday, September 21, BPSOS-New Orleans will host a health fair catering to the preventive healthcare needs of Vietnamese Americans, with special attention to the needs of seniors. The fact that Hurricane Katrina hit our community hard – many elderly people are still struggling to equip themselves with the bare necessities – makes meeting seniors’ health needs all the more important.

The health fair will take place September 21, 11:30am – 3:30pm at New Orleans’ La Vang Catholic Church, 6054 Vermillion Blvd.

Among the services to be offered are Hepatitis A/B vaccinations, Hep B/C screenings, HIV/AIDS testing, Medicaid application assistance, and assistance with the pharmaceutical drug discount program. Visitors to the fair will also be able to take home a range of outreach materials related to tobacco awareness, organ donations, environmental health, Medicare SHIIP, asthma, and HIV/AIDS.

We look forward to seeing you there! For more information, please contact branch manager Tony Tran at 504.433.8668 or tony.tran@bpsos.org.
