Dodge City Health Fair
On February 22-23rd, Juntos held a health fair in Dodge City, Kansas where a number of different services were available. We had 202 people screened for diabetes, hypertension, and BMI. Patients got the opportunity to speak with a doctor on site for advice according to their results.
Other services such as cancer education, smoking cessation education, dermascan (used to see damage on the skin), and fluoride treatments for children were also available. K-state provided information on healthy and balanced diets and a navigator was there to enroll people in the Affordable Care Act. Juntos aims to eliminate health disparities in Latino populations in Kansas; Dodge City, in particular, has a Latino Population of over 50%.
We would like to thank all our volunteers and healthcare professionals for helping out, here are some pictures of the event:
