Catholic Charities Health Resource Fair

Posted on

This past Saturday June 15th, we had the privilege of joining the Catholic Charities Health Resource Fair. The event was held at 2220 Central Avenue in Kansas City, KS.

We provided FREE screening stations (BMI, blood pressure, and blood glucose), plus we assessed risk for Diabetes (using the ADA tool). Thanks to our volunteers Cristal Hernandez, Stefany Paredes, Sophy Paulino, Annie Deruyter, Dulce Alejandrez, Yazmin Reyna, and Alejandro Gutierrez; without whom this would have never been possible. Around 40 people participated in the screenings, and received their risk assessment for Diabetes.


Our next Health Fair event will take place on Monday 24th of June; at the Mexican Consulate in Kansas City. We are always in need of volunteers to continue educating and screening the Latino families in the state of Kansas. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to participate.
