Third Annual Touchdown Family Fest Health Fair
On Saturday June 29th, 2013, Juntos attended the Third Annual Touchdown Family Fest Health Fair at the Chief arrowhead Stadium. This event was aimed to help thousands of people living in Kansas City gain access to free healthcare services such as physicals and immunizations.
Truman Medical Center sponsored this health fair and for the past two years has asked Juntos to collaborate in this event. Among the volunteers who attended this health fair were Dulce Alejandrez, Johana Bravo, Annie Deruyter, Alejandro Gutiérrez, Cristal Hernandez, Ivon Nieto, Sophy Paulino, Stefany Paredes, Yazmin Reyna, and Ana Romero.
Around 69 participants were screened for their level of risk for Diabetes. Participants were walked through an intake form, their height and weight were measured to determine BMI, and their glucose and blood pressure levels were checked. If you would like to volunteer in future projects, please contact Alejandro Gutierrez firstname.lastname@example.org 913-945-7065. Our next event will be at the Wyandotte County BACK TO SCHOOL FAIR, on Saturday August, 3rd. Come and join us!This entry was posted in Events, Uncategorized. Bookmark the permalink.
