Cuộc Hội Họp – Events: Save the Date! BPSOS-New Orleans to Host Health Fair on Sept. 21

August 21, 2008: Mark your calendar! On Sunday, September 21, BPSOS-New Orleans will host a health fair catering to the preventive healthcare needs of Vietnamese Americans. Many of the free services offered will be of special use to working families, since research has established that Vietnamese Americans face language and cultural barriers to accessing decent healthcare.

The health fair will take place September 21, 11:30am – 3:30pm at New Orleans’ La Vang Catholic Church, 6054 Vermillion Blvd.

Among the services to be offered are Hepatitis A/B vaccinations, Hep B/C screenings, HIV/AIDS testing, Medicaid application assistance, and assistance with the pharmaceutical drug discount program. Visitors to the fair will also be able to take home a range of outreach materials related to tobacco awareness, organ donations, environmental health, Medicare SHIIP, asthma, and HIV/AIDS.
