Event description

Description

The Glendale Health Festival is a FREE community service of the Armenian American Medical Society (AAMS)
The Glendale Health Festival is organized much like a visit to the doctor’s office. Patients start at the triage area; volunteers take pertinent information from participants and make recommendations about available FREE health screenings and services. Participants will have FREE blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar measurements taken and then sit down with a licensed physician who will make individualized recommendations. If there are specialty questions, an army of specialty physicians, such as Cardiologists, Neurologists, Podiatrists, etc., will be on-site to make recommendations. Licensed eye care specialists will be on-site to perform FREE eye screenings and indicated dilated eye exams AND FREE recycled perscription glasses for kids and adults. Participants can visit our dental screening area for a FREE evaluation and consultation with licensed dentists. FREE Breast cancer and cervical cancer screenings will also be offered to appropriate patients. CPR demonstration/training will be offered by certified educators as well as FREE flu shots will be administered on-site. In addition, education for the whole family will be available on conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, proper nutrition, heart disease, cancer awareness, and more.
The Glendale Health Festival attracts uninsured and underinsured individuals. Our efforts are to reach out to the community at large and to collaborate with as many organizations as possible whose goals are in-line with our objectives. Our goal is to reach out and service the indigent community as the statistics indicate that the percentage of uninsured in our community has been growing annually. For the past six years we were able to receive support from several organizations. This event is not limited to any age, gender, culture, race or religion therefore we encourage all to participate by taking advantage of the services provided, or by volunteering, contributing, collaborating and helping in any way they can.
