Cuộc Hội Họp – Events: Free New Orleans Health Fair Will Offer Screenings to Seniors – Oct 12

October 10, 2008: All seniors and their loved ones are invited to the free New Orleans Health Fair on Sunday, October 12!

Hurricane Ike knocked the original health fair for a loop, but BPSOS-New Orleans staff charged ahead on their mission to improve the Vietnamese-American community’s health. Some of the activities and participants include hepatitis A and B vaccines, screenings by the No AIDS taskforce, Wal-Mart vision tests, massages by Bluecliff College students, acupuncture by Dr. Quang, Medicare education, information about prescription drugs by Ken’s Pharmacy, materials from the Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-free Living, information on organ donation, and sign-ups for prescription drug discount cards with Together Access. Our great, community-minded sponsors include Gilead Pharmaceuticals, Roche, and Tibotec.
