Ventanilla de Salud in Garden City
On April 26-27, the Ventanilla de Salud worked alongside the Mexican Consulate in a health fair held in Garden City. People had the opportunity to get a health screening (BMI, glucose, and blood pressure checked) while they waited to get their matriculas, visas, and passports prepared by the Mexican Consulate.

Other services that were offered were Nutritional information, Dermascan/ Cancer information, Pediatric evaluations, and fluoride treatments for children. The Pediatric evaluations were tried for the first time at this health fair, and will now be a part of future health fairs.
We would like to thank volunteers from Juntos: Catalina Reyes, Gloria Cortes, Fabiola Hernandez, Johana Bravo and Liliana Abualla-Martinez as well as the Mexican Consulate for their help in making this another successful health fair.
Our next Ventanilla de Salud event is July 26th and 27th in Liberal, KS. If you are interested in volunteering please fill out the following registration form:
