Ventanilla de Salud – Touchdown Family Fest

On July 19th Truman Medical Center had their annual “Touchdown Family Fest: Health & Wellness Extravaganza” at the Arrowhead stadium. Free health services included Adult/Children’s Physicals, Vision/Hearing Screenings, Dental exams, Clinical Breast exams, and much more.

The Ventanilla de Salud was able to take part in this year’s health fair and provided health screenings to 27 participants.

Juntos volunteers measured BMI and blood pressure while A.M.I.G.As Lucia Martinez and Gloria Martinez gave breast cancer educational talks and mammogram referrals.

We’d like to thank all of our Juntos Volunteers and the promotoras for all their help at the health fair.

Our next Ventanilla de Salud events will be on July 26th and 27th in Liberal, KS and in Kansas City, KS. If you are interested in volunteering please fill out the following registration form:

Mexican Consulate gives JUNTOS a check to support Ventanilla de Salud

On May 15th the Mexican Consulate awarded JUNTOS a check to support the Ventanilla de Salud. The Ventanilla de Salud in Kansas is a health outreach program that provides Latino families with health information, free health screenings, and health insurance information.

This additional funding will help ensure that the Ventanilla de Salud continues to help Latino families in rural Kansas. We are very grateful for all the support we have received from the Mexican Consulate.
